Journal of Virtual Worlds Research - Vol 8, No 1 (2015) | Fernando Cassola in Virtual Worlds | Scoop.it

Journal of Virtual Worlds Research

Fernando José Cassola Marques's insight:

Virtual worlds hold a tremendous amount of potential for research, education, and interaction. While the literature available on virtual worlds has increased over the years, there are still unexplored arenas as well as areas that require further conversation and investigation. Some of us are continuing to develop our avatars and hone our skills in virtual worlds, while others are finding new ways to leverage the openness of these environments via unexplored opportunities within the virtual world.

This Assembled 2015 issue contains selected peer-reviewed articles that start, and in some cases continue, discussions about the vastness and versatility of virtual worlds.
