NASA Planning Educational MMO

The NASA Learning Technologies (LT) project has been paying attention to today’s edutainment trends, and plans to launch its own educational MMO.

NASA hopes to draw people in by letting them “tinker with chemical reactions in living cells, practice operating and repairing expensive equipment, and experience microgravity” in a simulated virtual reality of an MMO. The knowlege they aquire in play can help them with strategic thinking, interpretative analysis, problem solving, plan formulation and execution, team-building and cooperation, and adaptation to rapid change that can be translated to real life job skills.
