Wonderland blog

Wonderland projects:

University of Essex in Wonderland which can be entered and explored (use as per Java below) There is a common room with Moodle, Open Office, a lecture room etc

St Pauls Wonderland webstart links - enabled through Java (this will be a short download then you can go enter straight in, usually no password required, just enter a suitable name in the username box - this will appear next to your avatar and publicly viewable I think? ). Click run if you get a warning box. There is in-world help but to change your appearance (quite limited at the moment) select Tools and configure Avatar. To start moving, you can use arrow keys and/or mouse. To 'speed' up press shift+arrows, also pressing + will increase speed each time you press.
