Mini-Workshop: Qumran

The authors are presenting a research paper, "Edutainment in 3D virtual worlds. The SEE experience" in a session on the 22nd. In this participatory session, they invite the audience to visit a 3D space, co-operate through interaction with the environment and with each other, chatting, manipulating objects, etc. as they go. The intention is to further the discussion of design issues on Saturday, with an audience that has had the concrete experience of this environment themselves. Those planning to attend the Saturday session are especially urged to engage in this presentation.
