I just published an "open letter" to all OpenSimulator viewer developers in the Hypergrid Business e-magazine -- to request a downloadable viewer in a file form that can be readily integrated into a Canvas course site "Add App" panel (that requires the loading of a file type like "http://example.com/config.xml"). I currently use OpenSimulator learning simulations (created by me -- see examples of my Prisoners' Dilemma and Data Detectives Game simulations) in each online course I teach. In turn, access to a viewer pre-loaded into each of my course sites would be a tremendous boost to my e-teaching!
I am curious if there are other faculty/administrators in the Canvas community that use 3D virtual world learning simulations in their e-teaching?
We use two 3D Virtual World for our Museum Studies programs: NMNH Virtual Tour: Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and Service temporairement indisponible | Musée du Louvre | Paris .

Very interested in this topic though I haven't directly incorporated it into my teaching. Have done several research projects using SL and Opensim, most recently this one. Looking forward to seeing some Canvas connections.
