I have been developing a campus-model environment with Andersen Consulting for
the uses of world-wide training and project collaboration. We are currently
designing a client which incorporates not only MOO, but webservers,
white-boarding, GUI controls, FTP, local program file storage and retrieval
(powerpoint, word, corel, etc...), and 32-bit/3D graphics for the virtual
We have already run a pilot for MOO-type training (The pilot tested that it
could be done, not that it was better than RL) across some of our offices in
Europe and Scandanavia. We used a basic, pilot, version of our GUI client for
this endeavor (did not include white-boarding and 3D graphics), as we are still
in the R&D phase for the final product.
David, if you or anyone else who reads this list is interested in
collaborating on this type of environment, I am always looking for additional
input, myself. So, if you've been making a MOO-client or developing a virtual
campus..... let me know!
