WISSENHEIM – AN INTERACTIVE 3D-WORLD FOR LEISURE AND LEARNING

Wissenheim is a virtual 3D world offering a blended mixture of learning and leisure for our computer science students. It demonstrates important concepts from the course on „Technical Informatics“ and at the same time offers a social platform for the students. Available demonstrations are the well known „Dining Philosophers“, the „Token Ring with Priorities“ and the „Synchronisation Desert“. Wissenheim multi-user scenarios can run either as standard Java-applets in a browser, as shared memory applications under XtreemOS(TM) (a variant of Linux) or on top of RainbowOS - our proprietary DSM operating system. In addition to enhancing our teaching efforts we hope to capture an audience of young students who spend long hours in deplorably fruitless computer games. Different styles of 3D animations have been experimented with and may be visited under http://www.wissenheim.de
