The agency YOUin3D.com – constructor and operator of the virtual capital Berlin in Second Life® – momentarily is developping a virtual international location for education, science and research. By setting up a virtual campus for educational institutions such as universities, scientific institutions as well as vocational and language schools a site comes up which offers manifold possibilities to realize information and communication as well as interactive concepts of studying and teaching.
The projekt „CAMPUSin3D“ is supposed to be a public internet-based sphere where educational institutions can present themselves and demonstrate their offers, main focuses, members of staff and so on. Further, the platform is meant to support participants in gathering practical knowledge in dealing with new media, especially those studying in this field, and to base new ways of teaching, studying and transfering knowledge.
As support of the virtual „CAMPUSin3D“ a webportal is being set up that should be finished and be at hand by the end of May 2009. At www.CAMPUSin3D.com all institutions participating in the virtual campus have the oppurtunity to communicate and depict their activities in the virtual world.
The platform works as a kind of interdisciplinary think tank to support and simplify intellectual exchange all over the world.
