[Edu-sig] Question abut teaching using a MUD

I tried using a MUD for teaching, and my problem was that only 2 out of 30
of my students thought it was interesting.

I think if you can get a selected group of intersted students, it would be
great.  It creates an environment where a one or two line program is
already doing something interesting.

I found a Python implementation of a MUD someplace, but I can't remember
where.  It seemed to work in a rudimentary form.  I didn't think it was
"ready for prime time" and used a regular MUD for my test class.
