Dear all,

for the global education project The ShanghAI Lectures ( we are preparing two virtual world
environments, the main world using the Open Wonderland platform, the second
environment using the OpenSim+realXtend platform. The virtual environments
will be used as a place for about 300 students from across the globe to
collaboratively work on exercises that accompany a lecture on natural,
artificial, and embodied intelligence, delivered by Prof. Rolf Pfeifer from
the AI Lab at the University or Zurich.

For designing, scripting, and programming interactive objects for
collaborative work and learning in these environments we still have open
projects for students and others who are interested in virtual worlds and
skilled in programming, scripting, or 3D modeling. See the short
descriptions of the projects here:

This website also lists incentives/rewards for the students and the way to
contact the project manager.

Please forward this to your students and others who might be interested.
