TYPICAL DAY AT THE WILOSTAR3D ACADEMY

9: AM

Daniel enters the WiloStar3D campus and “walks” over to the main school building. He enters and walks toward the study hall and library. He notices he has a telegram. It is from his teacher telling him to check his daily feedback sheet in the WiloStar3D course area. Daniel takes his seat in study hall and then clicks on a 3D book to launch his personal daily feedback sheet. This  integrated in-world Web page has comments on his progress as well as suggestions and grades for completed assignments. His instructor has sent back revisions to the historical fiction piece he was working on in English. Daniel’s story involved Colonial America, something he was also studying in social studies. Daniel reads the revisions and comments from his instructor and notes any missing assignments he needs to do today.
