3D Virtual Worlds are NOT Dead, Dying or Disappearing

Karl Kapp, Kapp Notes, Mar 19, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

In response to recent reports that 3D virtual worlds are dead, disappearing and dying we see this article from Kaplan asserting that they are not, in fact, dead, disappearing or dying. Perhaps the other reports should simply have written 'deserted' and left it at that. No matter. The article is uncoinvincing. Karl Kapp writes about the virtues of a virtual world ("there is a level of engagement that I have never experienced with 2D webinar software or even video conferencing") but aside from reporting on a class where he was a gues speaker,m he offers no evidence to support the assertion in his headline.
