NEW: We have created a special Greenhouse Program™ grant, The Greenhouse Grant for Virtual Worlds, to foster greater educational innovation with virtual worlds such as Active Worlds, There and Second Life. Blackboard is funding a single $25,000 (USD) grant for initiatives that promote the integration of virtual worlds into teaching and learning. We seek initiatives that will:
* Enhance the student experience
* Leverage existing teaching and learning strategies and best practices
* Integrate virtual worlds and Blackboard Enterprise Software  through Blackboard Building Blocks™ and Blackboard PowerLinks™
* Make results/output available to the Blackboard client community
