How TRAGIC that Active Worlds isn't included. It has a proven track record of over 20 years, and runs on Macs, and even Windows smartphones. Using http://www.aw3du.com/ I run a program in our school that has grown to almost 200 users, taking some 30 different classes. There are NO problems with security, trolling, violence, adult content, use of media, or costs. The learning curve for building and creating is practically flat, allowing students to concentrate on developing content in the subject area, and we can currently hold meetings in world with all our staff and students (200). Here's a sample view or our new French program https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0si-k2V3f9Q What's significant is that the teacher had never heard of virtual worlds 2 months before taping this. She now teaches French to 80+ students in one now, and is preparing a Spanish world for next year. Given that this article has missed out on the opportunity to include this amazing resource, feel free to contact me for further information at gholden@onlineschool.ca
