Different virtual environments - something for everyone

"Considering the differences in educational needs, vAcademia is more suitable for formal education and for example language or sales person training that can be accomplished with simple role play. vAcademia's built-in tools, such as screen sharing, remote desktop control, laser pointers, connections to LMS systems and other productivity tools are optimized for this kind of learning. However, two unique aspects set vAcademia well apart from its competitors: While the level of customization in the platform may not meet all the needs of simulation-based learning, the ease of use that can be accomplished by limiting complexity is truly worthwhile. Also, vAcademia is the first platform to introduce 3D recording (platform records all the activities in the event and can playback them as a 3D event that you can participate as spectator), and this has many uses in the experiential learning."

vAcademia - Introduction and Example

"Unlike Second Life, in which users are free to build, socialize, and express themselves in a completely open user generated environment, vAcademia concentrates its activity on teaching. Teachers can use this virtual world to offer classes able to be recorded and played back by students. The company has developed a system to record entire 3D virtual world scenes;"

Second Life to vAcamedia: The Future of Virtual Worlds for Distance Learning

"This concept means that the learning experience for students can be extended and enriched through their engagement with a wide variety of learning modules. vAcademia classrooms are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. vAcademia is also a great collaboration resource. In fact, you can read more here about innovative ways academics have found to use vAcademia for collaborative learning in a 3-d virtual environment."

vAcademia Virtual World and 3D Recording

"vAcademia is an education focused virtual world learning environment similar to Second Life and Active Worlds. However, vAcademia offers one thing the others don't; the ability to record, archive, and search lessons. This means virtual reality can be recorded, relived, augmented, rerecorded, and experiences in many different ways"
