    I've seen a proof of concept around similar to this ... heavily using sharepoint, silverlight and OpenSIM. the educational ideal was very worthy, but the effort to construct a curriculum and school life around it was not quite worth it yet. It is a lot of work for a very sketchy outline. It relies on all the components you want to use having published APIs to embed into sections of your site, it could also rely on setting up your own Shibboleth system (if all components are authenticated via Shibboleth that is).

    This is only any good if you have been making use of some of the tools you really want. The school also has to think about whether this sort of development is sustainable. If you build it, who will continue it after you have won the lottery and are jetting round the world?

    to be honest I'm not 100% sure what they want and the dfesign brief seems to more elaborate every time they update it!! They are just scaring me at the moment with what they are asking

    The way i read that he just wants a visual representation of their progress in different areas. You could do it simply by just using still images or animated gifs. Each avatar could have say 5 different images representing different stages of "growth". Then build a moodle block that displays a different image depending on info from the other sites. (I'm assuming they're seperate sites - I have no idea what Human Utopia or Beta Enteprise Vitamins are) The tricky bit would be getting the info out but it should be doable.

    I agree a virtual desk is a bad idea. The PC is already on a real desk. And what's on the screen of the virtual PC? The virtual desk?? arrrgghh...

    Show them some screenshots of Microsoft Bob and see if they want that instead of Windows 7.

    Is this for a secondary school? I don't think older kids would like the fisher price approach.
