This gives read-only access to most of the material from the most recent simulation.

There is a paper describing the pre-Web version of the simulations on the JIME web site (see reference below).

Note: Extensive guidelines about how to design and implement Online Role Play plus examples of various role-play designs are available in the "Guides" section of this web site.

Intellectual Property and Dissemination

  The software was developed as a fourth-year thesis at the University of New South Wales. We have no idea what the IP status is. As far as John Shepherd is concerned, anyone who wants the software can have a copy.
