I made this video to bring awareness on Darfur so that maybe people will realize what all is going on in Darfur. This video in my opinion is a good video that touches the heart.
I have studied about connecting the world online. I studied how the internet has made the world flat. And that know where you are on the planet you can communicate with someone on the other side of the world just as fast as someone that live next door to you.

In my video I did not use my outsourced video that I was provided with.My video is about educational games that we can use in classroom to help understand easier. These games can also be used at home to help teach little kids to type and do other activities.

In the NetGenEd Project I studied educational games and how they can be used to make learning easier. I also talked about three specific games OpenSim,Woogie World and Webkinz. Also how they are used in education in today classrooms and homes.
