An aim of the class is to join up in the same “zone” in World of Warcraft, “Northshire Abbey” in the “Elwynn Forest” zone. This can be done either by entering the world as a specific species (human) which has this point as its entry to the world, or by exploring the lands to find a route to arrive there.
I like the social dimension of games, with “parties” and “clans”. I also like the idea of a virtual world being accompanied by a Wiki area for social interaction in such games. This could be a wiki in the School of Education such as PBWiki, or another. Since I manage OpenVCE.net (the Open Virtual Collaboration Environment) I have set up a class wiki area and entry page at: http://openvce.net/wiki/GBL and a class party page that we might want to use at http://openvce.net/wiki/GBP_WoW_Characters
Anyone can read this page anytime, but to change it you need to be registered and logged in http://openvce.net/
