    2017 OSHG: Would Kitely offer Halcyon as an optional version of opensim?

    Would Kitely offer Halcyon as 
    an optional version of opensim?
    Speculation on the possibility of Kitely running Halcyon as an optional alternative to the current OpenSimulator, with Hypergrid travel only available from the OpenSimulator worlds.  The special mode of operation that Kitely uses might make it possible to run Halcyon as an option on the Kitely grid.

    • Halcyon is not ready as a substitute for the dev version of OpenSimulator.
    • It does not have Hypergrid capabilities.  That is a deal-breaker for most of us.
    • But maybe not for Kitely, because of the way it operates.

      2017 STAGE: MUSIC: Guitar Master Playable Game & song maker for virtual worlds

      Guitar Master Playable Game & song maker
      for virtual worlds
      Master game builder Valerious Strongborn has now developed a guitar player game for OpenSim.  It combines a guitar prop, player animations, chords played by the guitar prop, and a game arrangement in which the gamer selects a chord and scores a point if it is the right chord for the song.  Could it be a learning tool?

      • Valerious  will soon be performing live in OpenSim, 
      • so he made props and animations.  
      • Then he made a playable game out of it those things.

        2017 WRITE: PEOPLE: Jane, Plain Jane: Part 6 I can't believe it!

        The writers group at Nara's Nook has started a learning and production project using the guide book "The 90-day novel," by Alan Watt.  To contribute to the project without spending the time on a novel, I am writing a short story or small play using some of the guidance from the book.

              ***2016 EDU: Web-world use case: Conversational spoken English! Or any other language

              Web world use case: 
              Conversational spoken English!
              Or any other language
              Language learning is well suited for virtual worlds and web-worlds offer an easy way to get started. Immersive learning on the browser.  Here is an introduction to web-worlds as they might be used for instruction in a language. 
              The old way to learn a language
              • Virtual worlds are used extensively for language instruction (see after the break).
              • They let learners learn the language in an environment where they will need it.
              • Learners can be immersed in the environment they are talking about.
              • Learners can practice together as they talk about things around them.  

              Why are virtual worlds not used more for language learning?

              • Virtual worlds require expensive, graphics capable computers.
              • You have to download and install a viewer.
              • You have  to learn how to move around, communicate, and activate things.

              Now you can put a small virtual world in a browser.

              • It will run on almost any modern computer.
              • You talk, move, sit and click on things.  A lot like you do on a flat web page.
              • If you come in when someone is there, they can help you.
              • People can easily come in on impulse, just to see what is offered.
              • If people like your web-world, they may want to come into your virtual world.
              • Web-worlds, progress and possibilities: Summary

              Drop by and let's talk
