Dwellings is a new kind of virtual learning environment, a kind of collaborative web browser incorporating chat, resource sharing and simple resource creation. It is based on the dynamics of cities, following from the work of Jane Jacobs. You could think of it as a cross between a MOO, a Wiki, a learning object repository and something else (social software).
