A service point for support for language trainers includes free as well as fee-based services to support language educators in their daily practice inworld. Free services include holodecks, teacher meetings and participation at events and conferences. Fee-based services include the renting of shops, offices, student quarters, our business barn and the hosting of groups of language learners, seminars, business meetings, exhibitions and events including 1st and 2nd level support.


1) Holodecks with more than 40 settings for teaching and learning activities

When teachers bring a group of students they can rezz a number of scenes from a holodeck centered in the sandbox.

To be able to rezz scenes rather than going to places benefits the teachers greatly because they do not run the risk of losing students on the way.


There are a total of 40 scenes available and include for example ...
