About the Cultural Community Hub 

The Cultural Community Hub was created to provide “a resource directory of ethnic, cultural and historical communities for use by educators and students for research and learning.” The Cultural Community Info Teleport Hub (CCH) located in the Whole Brain Health sim is a coordinated development of easy to access teleport links in the form of coordinated posters containing brief information and LM. More information including key informant interviews and resources are cross referenced in an attached library. The CCH is based on presenter’s published research and is envisioned to be arena for further planned multidisciplinary research in virtual worlds. Sims include communities of all kinds: educational technology, arts and sciences, worldwide cultures, representations of RL social issues, unique roles expressed in SL, and social support services.
