An Interdisciplinary Virtual Community
World of Diversity
of Diversity was launched on November
1, 2001. It is an alternative meeting space which has the capabilities
to interweave audio, video, and images into already textually rich descriptions.
World of Diversityis
also dedicated to promoting diversity and encouraging collaboration across
disciplines. All disciplines are encouraged to participate and may
build their own "Worlds".
At World of Diversity you can find on-line conferences, classes and/or individual students collaborating, virtual museums in a number of different disciplines and in a number of different languages, storytelling in Storybook Corner, an enchanted walk through Sherwood Forest, and our most recent endeavor, Culture Walks (virtual walking tours of different countries). The list could go on and on, it is without limits! Participation has included courses in Women's Studies, Foreign Languages, English, and Computer Programming.
World of Diversity is the perfect place to bring a class, collaborate with colleagues, have those virtual get-togethers, or just to experiment, try new things, and be creative. On these pages you will find all of the information that you will need to learn about World of Diversity and how to become a member of this delightful community! You need not be a teacher...you only need to be interested in promoting diversity!
So explore these pages and if you should have any questions, or if you would like to become a member of World of Diversity please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back with you within 24 hours.
Enjoy and we look forward to meeting you in our virtual space!
