Published on

Slides from the Air University 3D Metaverse presentation at OSCC 2015 by Dr. Andrew Stricker, Dr. Cynthia Calongne, Dr. Barbara Truman and Ms. Toni Scribner on Dec. 5, 2015 and Dr. Fil Arenas and Mr. Brad Aldridge. Features Squadron Officer College's grid designs, use of BulletSim physics for flight, the Alexa Echo for integrating the Internet of Things and game designs running on the Amazon AWS Lambda. Current research focuses on tailoring Alexa and building a virtual world grid on the Raspberry Pi2 with video and audio streams. Includes the Snack & Learn Schedule for 2015-2016 for Big Data and IoT integration with virtual learning.

  2. 2. THE AIR UNIVERSITY METAVERSE ONTHE CLOUD Each AU/SOC squadron is supported via a Universal Campus grid Dragons Knights Bulls Centurions Tigers Blackhawks 512x512 var grids Additional Grids in AU Metaverse SOC Main IoT Shangri-la xBase Note: xBase is a 1024x1024 grid High-level Goals • Support persistent 3D Single- and Multi-Player Education Role-Playing Games (SPERPGs and MPERPGs) for improving levels of engagement, meaningfulness, and interaction among learners, with augmented content, and instructors whenever and wherever • Support continuous use of learning analytics to discern and make visible levels of understanding and skill performance for improvements across a global Integrated Learning Environment (ILE) • Support persistent collaboration with partners from across higher education, industry and federal agencies to continuously explore and leverage blended 2D and 3D learning environments for educating future Airmen http://soc.austudiox.com
  3. 3. StudioX IoT Capability Using A Lambda-Delivered Alexa Skill Set For Connecting With AU Metaverse Micro-Learning Simulations Echo device App interface for learning sim scores
  4. 4. StudioX Raspberry Pi Capability for stand-alone or LAN access options to Micro-Learning Simulations running on Micro SD cards Pre-imaged OpenSim delivered micro- learning sims Raspberry Pi2 computer (for @$30.00)
 900 MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU 1GB LPDDR2 SDRAM (2x memory) Runs the full range of ARM GNU/Linux distributions
  5. 5. HOW IT WORKS API Gateway (option to use AU StudioX DreamFactory on the Cloud for RESTful API calls to endpoint or AWS login application management services) AWS AU StudioX Lambda on the Cloud is triggered Lambda runs Leadership game code and returns stored DynamoDB data back using node js AWS DynamoDB Echo Device (for blended connections between physical and virtual learning spaces) AlexaVoice Activated/Controlled by Instructor for Leadership Game Scorekeeper Updates AU Metaverse OpenSim Learning Simulation on the Cloud with option to use classroom stand-alone sim via Raspberry Pi2… Echo bluetooth paired with mobile device for using AU StudioX Leadership Skill Set wherever, whenever Leadership game data stored in DynamoDB on the Cloud …using pre-imaged Micro SD card configured for OpenSim running on Raspberry Pi
  6. 6. BULLET SIM ON RASPBERRY PI [BulletSim]     UseSeparatePhysicsThread = true    TerrainImplementation=0     BulletEngine = "bulletxna" OpenSim – cannot use libBulletSim.so with Raspberry Pi Can use XNA framework, however, with Mono: It includes an extensive set of class libraries, specific to game development Currently, unable to compile libBulletSim.so under an ARM environment (used by Raspberry Pi) Within OpenSim.ini include: You are telling the Mono engine to handle Bullet physics via XNA instead of relying on the linux libraries (libBulletSim.so) to handle the data (downside is XNA uses more processor power); also note: users may encounter issues with mesh objects when collision data is lacking (THANKS to S-Config for this solution and insights!)

  8. 8. INVITATIONTO AUTHORS Integrating an Awareness of Selfhood and Society into Virtual Learning Advances in EducationalTechnologies and Instructional Design (AETID) an edited IGI Global Publishers book project for inclusion in series: Author proposals are solicited for a collection of chapters examining the emergence and possible future directions for virtual learning from perspectives of philosophy, psychology, theology, sociology, law, and computer sciences. Contributions are encouraged from authors addressing the ways people perceive, think and interact across virtual and physical spaces and how such interactions are fundamentally changing the mind, identity, social interactions, intellectual boundaries, and ways of knowing and learning in society. Please send author inquiries to Andrew Stricker (astricker@me.com) or Cynthia Calongne (calongne@pcisys.net)
