2.1.  Edmondo

Edmondo is a closed OpenSim world maintained by INDIRE, the research institute of the Italian Ministry of Education. In this world school teachers take their students and encourage the students to build. These builds can be replica of real-life builds or imaginary learning towers.

Here are some of the impressions.
