Last February I posted an item on the Higher Education group discussion board (see Integrating a 3D Virtual World Viewer Into Canvas).  As further follow-up to this post, I wanted to focus the [Canvas] community's attention on an upcoming virtual event -- see the blog post Opportunity to Learn About Virtual World Use in Education


3D virtual world platforms like the OpenSimulator platform provide an inexpensive and effective way for faculty and institutions to stage engaging educational simulations.  Still, the ability of educators/institutions to optimize their use of OpenSimulator-based learning simulations is limited by the lack of a viewer (like the Firestorm and Singularity viewers) that can be integrated into Canvas (as an external app).
