Description

The main objective of the seminar is to expose to students a brief introduction to the development of virtual environments using the OpenSim platform. Since early this century, virtual worlds have been booming, thanks to the emergence of various games and virtual environments like Second Life. Opensim is born as an open source platform, based on Second Life, with freedom of server configuration and provides many facilities to develop multi-user virtual environments with a good quality at a relatively low cost.
