How US Government Agencies are using virtual worlds for training, outreach, and collaboration. Government agencies such as the Dept. of Energy, NASA, NOAA, USDA, and all branches of the military are actively involved in a variety of virtual worlds platforms. The Federal Consortium for Virtual Worlds (FCVW) consists of members from government (federal, state & local, & international), academia, and corporate sectors. It provides a venue to share best practices and lessons learned for the collaborative use of virtual worlds, address common challenges, and create structures to share resources. In this session learn about the consortium and some of the government projects.
