NICE: The Narrative Immersive Constructionist/Collaborative Environments project
Based in the Interactive Computing Environments Lab (ICE) and the Electronic Visualization Lab (EVL) at the University of Illinois at Chicago, NICE is a learning environment for young children, implemented in the CAVE(tm) virtual reality environment. Children can collaboratively construct artifacts in the CAVE and, in doing so, build an underlying narrative that is driven by constructionism.
NSF-funded work is being conducted jointly by Carnegie Mellon University and Shadyside Medical Center.
Sherwood Forest Community Project
Sherwood Forest Community is an experiment in community building and culture in AlphaWorld that is being planted and populated by members of the Contact Consortium. The purpose is to build a natural setting in which to interact, grow amd work.
Soar Intelligent FORces (IFOR) project
The Soar IFOR effort is a collaborative effort between researchers at the Carnegie Mellon University School of Computer Science, the University of Michigan's Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, and the University of Southern California's Information Sciences Institute.
A multi-user virtual environment (MUVE) that enables people anywhere to engage in real-time (synchronous) collaboration.
VESAMOTEX: Virtual Education - Science and Math of TEXas
The VESAMOTX program utilizes Virtual Reality to aid in the education of students in sciences and math. VR is used either passively, with the use of 3D glasses, or actively in immersive environments, with the use of HMDs.
VET: Virtual Environments for Training
The Virtual Environments for Training project is a collaboration with Lockheed AI Center and USC Behavioral Technologies Lab developing training systems whic integrate virtual reality and intelligent tutoring technologies.
V-HAG: Virtual Humans Architecture Group
Established to examine existing Virtual Humans systems and find areas of commonality, with an eye towards developing an interchange standard.
