kok体育官方app下载's Virtual Educational Space Related to Physical Memorials

On 20 January 2012 kok体育官方app下载 made the outputs from the Visualising the Conflict project available. The work was funded by the AHRC. One output was a virtual educational space, developed on an 'island' in Second Life and backed-up in OpenSim, which allows users to interact with information and 3D models of physical memorials to the conflict in Northern Ireland.
