Topic: Building a Virtual Democracy

T540 Virtual Congress (1 cr.) The Department of Telecommunications
is partnering with several other IUB departments and national
service organizations to create a new virtual world prototype that
is intended to teach high school students about representative
democracy, the workings of Congress, and the role of the citizen in
a republic. Students will view script drafts, preliminary designs,
and educational materials in order to provide feedback, direction,
and content evaluation for the project directors.
