Streaming into/within/from 3D Virtual Worlds (Converging Webcasting/ WiZiQ/ Moodle/ SLoodle into Second Life/Project Wonderland)

A. Introduction

http://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Education_in_virtual_worlds

Up to now, the standard converged situation was meant to look like this:

- Moodle & SLoodle & Avatar Trainer

But newly converged situations are also now unfolding:

- WizIQ/Moodle (Chat, Audio, Video, Synchronous, Asynchronous) & SLoodle & Avatar Trainer (Chat, Audio, Gesture) & Ustream.tv (In-world Video)...Open Source virtual worlds, and other whatnot to come 8-]

In order to enable this module, some course material must be prepared and installed. So it might be favorable to consider converging The Basic Program into WizIQ/Moodle first. Check the relevant module for this.
