Other Details Need Attention Too
We haven't done much work IN SL recently, but have been quite busy on other fronts related to the project, and others are demonstrating a high level of interest in what the group is attempting to accomplish with it. There have been numerous requests for presentations to university faculty about SL recently, but folks are also specifically interested in the project. These presentations provide a forum to enthuse and excite others about the educational possibilities of virtual worlds.
Additionally this week, a pre-application was submitted to the National Institutes of Health which includes this project as part of the overall aim. Notification should come in April if the project is selected as one for which the reviewers would like to see a full proposal.
Two of us are meeting next Tuesday to reevaluate where we are with the project and to begin discussions about the competition.
