We started the TecfaMOO around November 1994. At that time it wasn't a real project, but something like "let's have MOO and see what we can do". A few ideas have come up since then, i.e. see the short information on TecfaMOO (including a list research questions). Some of those ideas have turned into more serious projects or at least "usages".

1. Spreading the News ....

(Documentation, Teaching, and Technology Transfer)

Documentation on MOOs and MOOing

Documentation on MOOs and MOOing is sometimes hard find and certain things are missing. Therefore we decided to spend some effort on that.

MOO Education at TECFA

Technology Transfert: Increase the popularity of MOOs

E.g. "Easy" publications and conferences, as well as organization of workshops, mentening the MOO in publications about distance edcuations, ... Blurbs on MOOs can be found in:

2. MOO Workshops and Tutorials

3. Research Projects involving TecfaMOO

  1. The MOO as medium for experimentation on collaboration
  2. MOO Agents
  3. Social Influence in a collaborative work (PS file, not very nice looking). HTML version might appear sometimes.
  4. MOOs as collaboration tool for research:
  5. The MOO as medium for various research: Currently a number of MA thesis projects have been completed, e.g. in social psychology or cognitive science [more needed here!].
  6. In planning stage: Educational Learning Environments over the MOO and the WOO.

4. MOO as CMC Tool for teaching and cooperation

Some of these uses of TecfaMOO might be turned into research projects.
