2-4 Study of other MOOs
The WWW presentation page of this WOO environment contains various introductory points like purpose, frequently asked questions, visit, recordings of meetings and reference files. In the purpose, one can read:"
BioMOO is a virtual meeting place for biologists, connected to the Globewide Network Academy. The main physical part of the BioMOO is located at the BioInformatics Unit of the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel "."
BioMOO is a professional community of Biology researchers. It is a place to come meet colleagues in Biology studies and related fields and brainstorm, to hold colloquia and conferences, to explore the serious side of this new medium ".
The BioMOO is one of the most successful MOO for communities of researchers. On a technical level, it has one of the most (if not the most) enhanced environment. Unlike the MediaMOO, it offers a WOO environment using interactive maps, databases with very simple search systems, etc. Since its creation, hundreds of people have registered, and have created lots of objects, through which they tell about their work. There have been many online seminars, and lots of people have made acquaintances. Every day, people meet on the MOO and learn something new. The online seminars may have taken two formats: the posters session and the talks session. Both of them have proved to be really and very efficient for a domain like biology. Indeed, images really are important for this domain and the integration of the WWW interface to the MOO is a major improvement. [Gustavo 93]
This kind of MOOsession do happen frenquently on the BioMoo and one feel very confortable reading the records. This sessions are recorded throught the MOO with the use of the virtual video camera and files are constantly available through the WWW browser.
