Abstract

Presenting Web-content inside a 3D shared virtual space has strong potential as a tool for collaboration, but there are a number of issues to be resolved - an array of factors both technical and human. In this short paper we outline work on the SLOODLE browser, a collaborative browser for Second Life. We hope that this work has the potential to enhance collaborative-browsing through embedding it in a rich and highly social 3D space.
