I'm afraid of becoming one of those old guys that just doesn't get it.

One of my reasons for starting up Why Edify is to create a place where I can read, learn, write and share things. To wage a battle against becoming stagnate.

Here are some resources centered around the following questions:

  1. What is the Metaverse?
  2. What are some Metaverse teaching and learning resources?
