+ - Kuda, WebGL tech for creating in browser based 3D

Submitted by kilrathu
kilrathu (1270456) writes "A new open source HTML5 / WebGL tool has been created as a result of a project undertaken by the U.S. Dept of Energy to train Weatherization workers . This technology, called Kuda, is a set of JavaScript libraries that build on Google’s O3D technology by providing a GUI to build interactive 3D environments. It also runs in browser. It allows people to import 3D assets and make them interactive with a simple message handler utility."

+ - Video games to teach AP level immunology.->

Submitted by

kilrathu writes "Longtime proponents of using video games as sources of learning, the Federation of American Scientists [FAS.org] put its money where its mouth is. FAS released Immune Attack, an educational video game designed to teach immunology to AP level high school students and combines the most current research on teaching methodologies with a 3D first person shooter game.

"The key to the game was making sure it was fun while also covering accurate and complex immunology topics," said Dr. Michelle Lucey-Roper, director of the FAS Learning Technologies Program.

The game is free, although not open source, and can be downloaded here http://www.immuneattack.org/
