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.
