Exploring Mobility, Chatbots, Blockchain and Augmented Reality solutions in the Cloud to re-imagine Education & Research

Wonderland launch day on the Education Grid

Kevin Roebuck
Director, Digital Experience

It looks like June 20th is the now set for the public launch in Wonderland of our first nodes on the Education Grid launch with the Immersive Education community as our guests. We have two confirmed sites, three more in set-up and anyone else on the planet who can get their open source virtual world site spun up and running can also join in the fun for this historic event. Here's all you need to plug-in to the
Education Grid event:

Download the MPK20 sample virtual world and Project Wonderland software tool-set, power it up on top of Darkstar, get it on the net and then get ready to welcome your new avatar guests and participate in future 3-D collaborative sessions in a variety of topics.

For interested parties we only need a Java Webstart URL or (ideally) the IP address of your Wonderland server, and we can include them in the launch and corresponding news announcement. Here's a snapshot of the nodes for today:


  • Essex University    [READY]
  • Clive/U.Oregon     [pending; URL IP ADDRESS NEEDED]
  • NMC/CommonNeed     [pending; URL or IP ADDRESS NEEDED]
  • Sun Microsystems     [READY]
  • Virtual Northstar/St Paul College [pending; URL or IP ADDRESS NEEDED]
