Abstract

When a team of students working on a large software engineering project needs to collaborate together, holding in-person meetings can be difficult. Various issues could prevent the team from collaborating easily and effectively in person. Our project aims to solve these problems. We developed two software modules for Project Wonderland, an open-source toolkit from Sun Microsystems Labs for creating collaborative 3D virtual worlds. We used these modules, along with preexisting modules, to build a proof-of-concept virtual team room inside Wonderland for use by students taking WPI's Software Engineering class.
