Rapport: Environmental and Occupational Health

kcmdrkonqiSå er der mere læsestof for dem (tilsyneladende en hel del !) der er interesseret i erfaringer med uddannelse og træning, specielt indenfor medicinske, helbredsmæssige eller katastrofeberedskabs-område, vha. af virtuelle verdener som Second Life.

Der er en hel del om play2train (katastrofeberedskabstræning), men følgende bliver også berørt: the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention-CDC Island (public health), Karuna Island (AIDS support and information), Tox Town at Virtual NLM Island (US National Library of Medicine - environmental health), and Jefferson's Occupational Therapy Center.

Jeg har inkluderet en video for dem der ikke ved hvad Play2train er.

Web 3D for Public, Environmental and Occupational Health: Early Examples from Second Life

Udarbejdet af: International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.

Abstract: Over the past three years (2006-2008), the medical/health and public health communities have shown a growing interest in using online 3D virtual worlds like Second Life® (http://secondlife.com/) for health education, community outreach, training and simulations purposes. 3D virtual worlds are seen as the precursors of ‘Web 3D', the next major iteration of the Internet that will follow in the coming years.

This paper provides a tour of several flagship Web 3D experiences in Second Life®, including Play2Train Islands (emergency preparedness training), the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention-CDC Island (public health), Karuna Island (AIDS support and information), Tox Town at Virtual NLM Island (US National Library of Medicine - environmental health), and Jefferson's Occupational Therapy Center.

We also discuss the potential and future of Web 3D. These are still early days of 3D virtual worlds, and there are still many more untapped potentials and affordances of 3D virtual worlds that are yet to be explored, as the technology matures further and improves over the coming months and years.

Personlig bemærkning: Jeg notere mig at man i rapporten helt har forstået at web 2.0 og virtuelle verdener ikke er noget nyt. Dejligt!
