[TIPS] eduism - 3d environment for whiteboards

"The Edusim is a free & open source educational 3D interactive virtual environment built on open source Croquet (using Wisconsin Worlds) with resource packs being developed for the K-12 classroom by the Greenbush Education Service Center.

The goal of the Edusim project is to provide a safe 3D interactive environment for classroom activities (interactive white boards, modeling, machinima, and MORE). "

Watch the video. Looks pretty interesting.

Thanks to Durff for sharing this with me via the for:jgates513 tag on delicious.

I have spent a few hours navigating through the system. There are some interesting potentials for it. Object manipulation is not the easiest, but it is tolerable with practice. I don't see your average teacher, usually possessing average tech skills at best, using the system effectively.
