I'm glad to announce that the first version of "101 Ways to Use Tagxedo" is completed! --> <-- Please be patient as it does take a while to load the document (10MB, over 150 images). A few slides: Each way to use Tagxedo is accompanied by at least one example. I tried to go for the full spectrum of possibilities, but still there are many variations that are not covered, or merely mentioned in passing. Please help me spread the word.

The Promise of Virtual Reality in Higher Education Virtual reality teeters on the edge of becoming mainstream, with software development outstripping the hardware and memory storage needed. In this article, a librarian and an art historian discuss the many ways that VR may transform learning and student experiences. Not that long ago students and scholars could access only the libraries and museums available to them on their home campus — or perhaps in their city or region — because only a select few had the credentials to access materials from other institutions or the means to travel to distant places for their research. The Internet changed everything, of course, with the corpus of human knowledge now at everyone's fingertips. Just as hypertext, digital publishing, and other digital media have transformed the ways in which we engage with documents and collections, the technologies surrounding virtual reality (VR) may ultimately transform the ways in which we teach, learn, engage with each other, and experience the world writ large.
