Welcome to Hakone

The Hakone Project is a collaboration between the New Media Consortium (NMC) and Linden Lab to create a new platform for the creation and operation of virtual environments for use by educators of all levels, from pre-K through graduate school. This new environment comes complete with all the power and potential of Second LifeĀ®, but with none of the constraints that have troubled many educational adopters. (more...)

The NMC is currently using Hakone as the venue of its Online Virtual Symposia. This web site is our user guide for those who are participating in our events in Hakone.
