Vitrual Worlds, Real Sensitivity
MMOs are being used to deliver cultural sensitivity training--by the U.S. Army. Who says the military doesn't get it? The U.S. Army has created VECTOR, Virtual Environment Cultural Training for Operational Readiness, to help troops be more culturally sensitive in Iraq. If it is successful, I hope that there will be more such applications in the civilian space as well.
