A bit surprised (and disappointed) that the authors didn't include Active Worlds. The educational wing ( www.as3du.com ) is doing some amazing things, and our program is experiencing phenomenal growth because of it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0si-k2V3f9Q

This video is of the first IMT French class for grade 5 students on Sept. 21, 2015.
Gord Holden's insight:

For those who say it can't be done. This video shows how quickly a new teacher to this methodology and her new students can quickly adjust. Students here are from across the Province of British Columbia, Canada, and from as far away as Quebec. By the time you've read this the students have become an effective learning community, all from the comfort and safety of home.
