The editors suggest starting with Michael Day's CoverWeb Overview and MOO history which effectively contextualizes each contribution. MOOs and MUDs provide valuable virtual resources for teachers interested in increasing student-to-student interaction while professional uses of these text-based virtual realms are becoming increasingly common. Michael Day introduces the different contributions in his discussion of MOOs as education environments; each web concentrates on a different aspect of Educational MOOing.
