Looks like an interesting project. Would be good to explore the language interaction potential of something like this. Could be done almost as easily with SimsCity etc.

Training teachers through innovative methodologies based in serious games

Training teachers through innovative methodologies based in serious games | vocational simulations | Scoop.it

When using the SimAULA platform, the teacher in training controls an avatar that interacts with student avatars (controlled automatically by SimAULA) in a virtual classroom, where lessons are taught and a series of situations liable to arise in a face-to-face environment are played out. By way of a specific example, the first version of SimAULA features a simulated biology class in which the teacher avatar has to help student avatars fulfil various learning goals.

Thanks Nik, I can see this being useful for all sorts of disciplines not just teaching. If this is really as flexible as is suggested it might replace some work currently done in virtual worlds.
Karen Johnson's curator insight, January 21, 2013 4:12 AM

In the future this could be be very useful for disciplines other than teaching.  I wonder if it will be flexible enough to replace some aspects of what we currently do in virtual worlds.
