Classrooms of the Future

This Mixed Reality teaching environment could very well be the wave of the future. Imagine an environment where humans and avatars intermingle as students. They learn from the same instructor, at the same time, from all over the world. They participate at the same time in the same "classroom" and they collaborate on projects both real-time and at "home". This joint project between the University of Essex and Sun Microsystems demonstrates what is possible for the future classroom.
