Abstract

The paper first characterizes the differences between tangible learning community and virtual learning community and claims that virtual learning community is one of the most significant ingredients in networked learning environments. Subsequently, the architecture of an inhabited virtual learning world based on techniques and principles found in popular massively multi-player online games that host gaming communities successfully is proposed aiming at virtual learning community of practice.
