AW3DU is a Universe of Immersive Educational Experiences
We are dedicated to building experiences for students that will trigger their imaginations and encourage social learning groups
Since 1995, AW4L has been supplying teachers, schools, libraries and museums with accessible and stable virtual worlds. Developed to use web standards and low bandwidth, this world building software offers educators the ability to create - or to let their students create anything imaginable. Teachers involved in educational programs have demonstrated that this is a valuable tool for reaching students and motivating their creative process and we have developed our platform to fit these needs. Some examples include River City, Quest Atlantis and NIA Universe.

Virtual worlds as an architecture of learning
Virtual or “Synthetic” worlds such as “Second Life”, and online games such as “World of Warcraft” open up the possibility for new and enriching experiences as both an entertainment and an educational medium.
For educators Virtual Worlds have the potential to extend the boundaries of when, where and how learning can happen beyond the realm of the traditional classroom.

ICT for the Non-Specialist - Virtual Worlds
ICT for the Non-Specialist - Virtual Worlds Online video from Teachers TV
The potential of using virtual worlds in education is explored by both teachers and pupils in this programme.
After joining the Schome project, which investigates how education can work with virtual environments, assistant head Mike Adams is able to investigate the educational benefits of virtual world Second Life.
Pupils at John Hanson School Community School, Andover, also show how they use software to build within virtual worlds.
Steve Thompson from the University of Teeside then works with pupils at Freebrough SE College, Cleveland, as part of a Second Life project to virtually redesign and rebuild Cleveland's Skinningrove Jetty. Steve also leads a training session for those working in education who want to explore Second Life's benefits for collaborative learning. Head of maths Helen Perkins describes what she sees as the educational benefits of using virtual worlds with pupils in the classroom.

Virtual worlds in education and Moodle
"Today I'd like to share with you my recent paper about using virtual worlds in education, with a special focus on how we can use virtual worlds with Moodle. I wanted this paper to be a basic introduction to why virtual worlds are good for education, and also provide a basic overview of some of the most interesting virtual worlds/tools on the market today."
