Ocotillo I, 12:30-1:45

The goal of the workshop is to give participants an overview of the virtual world known as OS Grid and how educators could use this virtual space in their online classes. The hope is that by using an online world such as OS grid, students will feel a greater sense of belonging and community leading to greater class retention. 

This workshop will be delivered in a presentation format and cover the basics of the virtual world, OS Grid and the metaverse known as Open Sim. The outcome of the workshop is to give participants a general overview and foundation into using OS Grid in their online classrooms. The intended audience is faculty that currently teach online.
