Description:
Through librarians’ perspectives, this presentation analyzes conflicting definitions of VR and virtual worlds and addresses friction between VR and 3D virtual world developers and users. The presentation contrasts two free, desktop-compatible VR worlds (AltspaceVR and Sansar) and summarizes the state of communities in these worlds vs. 3D virtual worlds like Second Life. Ultimately, it proposes best practices for future educational collaboration and digital citizenship across virtual platforms.
