DescriptionAvatars looking at mayoral candidate boards in EVA Park

EVA Park is an online virtual world for people with aphasia, developed and tested by the EVA project. This follow-up project is transforming EVA Park from a prototype into a service ready version of the platform, so that other groups can run the software independently. The work will ensure that EVA Park is robust, will develop user manuals and a support web-site, and will create customised virtual objects to support therapy case studies being undertaken in the "Taking EVA Park into Service: Therapy Case Studies" project.
