The book stops here…

Here: February 15-19, 2010

Tony O’Driscoll and Karl Kapp have a book coming out next month — Learning in 3D: Adding a New Dimension to Collaboration and Learning. Amazon’s blurb:

Understanding the impact that 3D environments, virtual worlds, and immersive learning spaces will have on society, business, and learning is a challenge. Corporations, academic institutions, and government agencies must develop a clear understanding of how virtual immersive environments will impact global interactions, knowledge transfer, work transactions, and existing learning paradigms.

Learning in 3D empowers forward-thinking executives, managers, faculty members, and training professionals to design, develop, and collaborate in the rapidly emerging field of 3D immersive environments.

I haven’t read the book yet (maybe this weekend), but I’m intrigued by the way Tony and Karl are publicizing it. Among other things, there’s a virtual book tour that floats from one popular blog to another. Tony’s tweeting daily at #lrn3d. Each week, they’ll give a copy of the book to a random tweeter. The book’s site has four video examples. There’s a Facebook Fan Page.

It’s really smart to publicize a book like this on the web.

Drop by Internet Time Blog the week of February 15-19 when the book stops here.
