Canadian Lethbridge College is going to Metaverse. It partners with Liquid Avatar Technologies and gives work-integrated learning opportunities for its’s students to occupy property in the metaverse.
Liquid Avatar Technologies provides 9 000 plots of land within its Aftermath Islands Metaverse – the platform for creating virtual world spaces same to the real-world analogs.
Students will be able to build structures, businesses, and even complete transactions in this metaverse. On some of the virtual land, the College will have its’ own campuses for online events, learning, and other services.
“Our students will learn so much about entrepreneurship and building in the metaverse and will gain a much greater understanding of digital space and digital identity while these worlds evolve and grow. We are proud of how we lead in this space, and we are thrilled to work with the skillful, talented, and creative Liquid Avatar team”, – says Cherie Bowker, chair of Lethbridge College’s School of Spatial Design Technologies.
The new program will last till the end of the winter 2022 semester. During this period “Lethbridge College Island” users can learn how to work, play, study, entertain, and earn in the metaverse.
Besides the virtual land students also get up to 100 000 in-game currency credits. Virtual money can be used for building, buying, and trading assets like additional property, objects, landscape items, and even avatars themselves.
A few weeks ago Aftermath Islands Metaverse Launched Mobile Play to Earn Game for In-Game Tokens and NFTs. It is called the Lost Kingdom of T’Sara (LKoT).
As Yahoo reports, LKoT Players will have the ability to hire NPC (non-player character) Explorers that will visit T’Sara, a chain of 7 islands filled with wonders and riches, and recruit local virtual inhabitants to gather, craft, trade, sell and do other activities automatically or with a certain time and task inputs, providing in-game proof of work, to create value and rewards.
