Location: West Departure 2
Abstract The IBM Learning Commons is a multi-purpose configurable environment that incorporates 3D learning design patterns harvested from years of developing learning programs and conducting events in virtual world environments at IBM.  The tour will highlight archetypes that effectively leverage 3D immersive social environments for corporate learning, how multi-purpose configurable spaces can be effectively leveraged by facilitators to meet their specific learning needs, and to how to best equip environments with intuitive controls and tools for users.  The approach and design of this environment can serve as a useful reference for the development of any university campus or adult immersive learning platform.
