Ann, I have been taking a class from the University des Saarlands on
on-line learning. My most recent research has been on educational uses of
MOOs ( an offshoot of the old dungeon and dragons games).
I've put together a brief bibliography of some of the more interesting
sites, so will include it below. I've starred some of those with more
Now a question of my own--is anyone using this kind of technology for art
learning? so far MOO's mostly use Telnet and are strictly text based, but
some are beginning to use graphical and/or Java based interfaces which will
work with web-type pages etc.. I think there is an exciting opportunity
waiting here--has anyone given it a thought?
"TAPPED IN is a technology called a multi-user virtual environment (MUVE)
that enables people anywhere to engage in real-time (synchronous)
collaboration, send email, post to bulletin boards and listservs
(asynchronously), and browse Websites collaboratively all in a single
on-line venue. "
