Welcome to WalkAbout
WalkAbout is a distributed and open virtual world application for enhanced and engaging learning. Using WalkAbout, teachers and learners can engage in active learning using different 3D-environments online, where learning and education can be conducted.
The environment allows learners to represent themselves using many different avatars, animations, expressions paired with traditional voice communication. More classical presentations are done using one or several virtual web screens that allow users to bring outside content into the virtual world.
Furthermore, gamification is used to enhance the learning using missions, points and challenges.
WalkAbout is developed using a commercial game development engine, Unity.
