    Collaboratively programming robots in virtual spaces to support Japan Recovery.
    Dr. Michael Vallance, Future University Hakodate, From their website...
    "Since 2008 we have been researching the programming of LEGO Mindstorms robots by students located in Japan and UK. Students have been communicating in a virtual world; initially we used Second Life but now we have our own open source, OpenSim virtual space). The collaboration has been funded by the UK Prime Minister’s science initiative (named PMI2) and Japan’s JAIST (named kakenhi). We adopt a learner -centred design approach where students support researchers in iteratively developing unique tools in-world for virtual collaboration. The communication task outcomes are the successful programming of LEGO robots to follow pre-defined circuits."
