The resources include the description of the learning environment used in the AVALON project and the created content. As with all of the other outputs from the project, these are available under an open source licence.
This report lists potential 3D solutions for use with the project and includes a comparison of them with respect to usability and accessibility. The final version of this report includes experiences that project partners had during the in-world workshops, action learning events and the training pilot and aims to provide recommendations to the broader community.
- an operational handbook including an operational model which allows the replication of the IT infrastructure
- a content repository for all substantial work products created in the project
- an open source web portal to make the contents in the repository easy to find and reuse
- a lot of different content in 2D, 3D and streaming media formats created during the AVALON project
Extending the data model of the selected open source learning management system to allow a dynamic interaction between 3D and 2D environments. Providing feedback for the participants in the live action learning events. Providing educators a means to manage 2D and 3D content during educational live action events.
Good practice in using a simplified and more accessible 3D learning experience to extend the audience of users. This practice will allow people without high end computers to access the the learning that takes place in virtual worlds. Different approaches have been tested and integrated into the AVALON websites to support learning events.
