I'm pleased to be accepted into this group. I've worked in immersive technologies for about 20 years now, with initial work in VRML, long ago. Currently, I'm enjoying creating simulations in collaboration with Reaction Grid (I see John Lester (pathfinder)) has joined the group as well. Currently projects are dominantly for nursing education at American Sentinel University. I was Executive Director of the Sloan Consortium prior to retiring from that group of many colleges and universities. During the years there, we used Second Life for meetings and taught many online courses about SL. I am really devoted now to what Unity/Jibe can do (and does so well).
I would be tremendously interested in doing an analysis of what other people are doing in nursing in this area (new for me, since I'm trained in and taught engineering and business for 40+ years). Nursing seems to be a great field for Immersive Technologies 4 learning - so I appreciate John Lester introducing me (and Trevor Rasmussen) to this group. I have a real interest in doing some collaborative work, if any of you are interested.
