What is a Collaborative Model? 

There are many ways we, as separate individuals and organizations, can join together under an umbrella that will benefit us all. Here I offer some ideas for the groundwork to consider as we move forward.

                                2017 EDU: OSHG: A proposal for a web-world to support nonprofits in virtual worlds.

                                A proposal for a web-world to support 
                                nonprofits in virtual worlds
                                Nonprofit Commons is developing a plan to put a web-world on a web page at its website.  Here is a preliminary plan for developing the web-world

                                Web-world

                                • A small virtual world that can be embedded in a web page 
                                • And can be entered from there.  
                                • Example:  Cybalounge updated: now with voice!
                                • No download, no install. Choose an avatar, type a name, enter.
                                • Supports voice, audio stream, webpage display, avatars, furniture.
                                • Resources for inworld builds are limited; best use voice and web-links.
                                • Web-worlds can be as secure as any other browser communication,
                                • though the initial versions may not meet strong security requirements.
                                • Summary of the HIPAA Security Rule

                                The plan

                                • Nonprofit Commons will have a web-world on its web page.
                                • The web-world will be available for use by all interested organizations.
                                • Provided they are nonprofit or non-commercial.
                                • The objective is to have people there to welcome people.
                                • It will attract more attention if it has people and action most of the time.  
                                • This is a draft plan.  It will change.  We will be smarter next month. 
                                -
