Our Virtual World Platforms
WiloStar3D is at it again! After over 18 years successfully using Wiloworlds, our original 3D campus, we are now pioneering a brand new immersive learning platform called WiloStarius. Students can create worlds, easily drag, drop, and import models to literally create an infinite amount of worlds. This expands educational opportunities for our students. WiloStar3D students also have access to the Wiloworlds virtual world educational platform. This is the software that you use to visit WiloStar’s 3D Campus and 3D virtual worlds. Wiloworlds and WiloStarius are both “closed” educational environments for the safety of our students. If you would like to obtain a guest visitor pass then please fill out our online contact form and a tour guide will email you with your guest pass information. Our goal is to allow you to come see the exciting things we do yet still protect our existing students.
We run our 3D worlds on our own servers to ensure the safety of our participants. We also require that all participants sign a code of conduct to ensure appropriate behavior is respected and upheld. A WiloStar3D staff member will always be present during WiloStarius hours of operation. A world is a place that you inhabit along with other online homeschool students who are logged in at the same time as you are. You can communicate with other users, and you can see their avatars. Many worlds let you build, and whatever you build is visible to all other homeschoolers who visit that world.
In WiloStarius your own 3D avatar represents you. There is a huge number of avatars to choose from. You can change your avatar with just the simple click of a button. Avatars can run, jump, fly, dance, and enable you to express a whole host of emotions.
The WiloStarius immersive learning environment also offers nextgen graphics based on the Unity game engine and includes tools we have built to enhance online instruction and building in virtual worlds.
Being part of WiloStarius and participating in an interactive 3D experience is fun, educational and worthwhile. We have been hosting and building educational communities now for over twenty years and we can tell you students and families LOVE it.
As social environments, our virtual worlds are unique in that they are graphical. This allows people to express their identity VISUALLY, rather than just through written words. The result is a whole new realm of self-expression and social interaction with subtleties and complexities not seen in text-only environments.
WiloStarius Crew Member Sampling
Avatar Crew Members
Ready to blast off to explore new worlds and complete missions for learning? WiloStar students choose a crew member as their unique student avatar to use exclusive to themselves.
The WiloStar3D Creativity theory means students are meaningfully engaged in creating new immersive learning activities through interaction with others and actively involved in the creative process. Avatars help accomplish this goal.
WiloStar students interact in a gamelike environment where they can 'sit' in class, run across misty mountains and fly through the horizons of learning.
WiloStar3D allows students to explore different facets of their personalities using avatars in a safe educational environment.
Avatars Teach Social Skills
We show students how their own personality traits and behavior effects others' perceptions of identity. This gives students a chance to see that how you "act" within the 3D world can impact how others view you.
New Avatars Added Constantly
WiloStar3D is constantly evolving and changing to adapt to new technology and to improve its educational program for the benefit of students. We also expect this of our students.
Student Avatar Designs
For our more advanced 3D design students, we offer the chance to add their own creations to WiloStarius.
When you play a role different from your everyday viewpoint, new insight is developed by stepping into another's shoes.
Express your Voice
Students want to express their voice and spirit, and to be able feel safe in their learning environment.
Mod your World
Students complete WiloStar Interactives inside WiloStarius, a revolutionary immersive learning platform that allows students to mod and build their own worlds and regions.
WiloStarius Learning Pathway Method
As a student in the WiloStar3D Academy, you will learn how to build, design, and code your own virtual levels and regions. Each week, as part of your course work and modules, you will complete building and design activities to develop your Learning Pathway region. Each Learning Pathway region has building stations. Your teacher will assign building projects for each station along the pathway. You will share, present and even assess your participants that visit your station. This enables you to not only soak up knowledge in new ways but also shares your knowledge and creations with others. The best part of the Learning Pathway method is that is saves your builds as a viewable archive of learning that you can progress through and visualize as you go.
