Event Details

While the use cases for OpenSimulator learning simulations continue to expand, many of the early types of virtual world educational simulations/activities remain relevant today. Attendees will learn about new uses for OpenSimulator learning simulations (including examples of VR-ready simulations) as well as review examples of proven in-world and out-of-world educational simulations. The reasons for the staying power of selected simulations and challenges to the wider use of OpenSimulator learning simulations will be discussed.

    Kay McLennan

    Professor of Practice, Tulane University

    Kay McLennan is a Professor of Practice at the Tulane University School of Professional Advancement. Kay created the Tulane SoPA Metaverse and has been creating and using virtual world learning simulations in her online economics and business studies courses since 2008. Kay uses student feedback to continually refine and expand the educational simulations she creates to use in her e-courses. She has written about her creation and use of OpenSimulator-based learning simulations – read about "Interactivity, Engagement, and Increased Learning Outcomes in 3D Virtual World Educational Simulations" @, “Prisoners’ Dilemma” simulation use case example @, and “Data Detectives Game” simulation use case example @ Also, the video clips from the December 2018 “Mainstreaming Virtual World Learning Colloquium” event (organized by Kay) can be viewed @
