Discovered this great resource from the University of Indiana today called Virtual Congress.  After signing up for a FREE account and downloading the software, I was able to wander the grounds and begin exploring the inner chambers of the virtual version of the United States Congress.

Link here:  Virtual Congress

If you are familiar with Quest Atlantis, another wonderful virtual learning world, you will find Virtual Congress familiar in respect to how the world is set up and the movements you can make.  You do have the ability to register students into the world and to set up your class(es) so that you can visit and do a variety of activities from creating a bill to attending hearings and sessions of Virtual Congress.  At the time of my visit there was nothing scheduled and no other “people” around, but I plan to explore this resource in the future.

Give it a try!
