The Theorist Project is an good example (IMHO) of a group "build" that
worked.  The structures were provided but the students, in groups of their
own, had to furnish 3 of the theorist "stores".  In order for us to be able
to make changes down the road (read: long after the students were out of
class) or to help make sure something was "on" the floor or "against" the
wall, everyone was told to make sure they have the group for the class
active when they created or rezzed objects and also to share the object with
the group.
Did we have any set backs, at first, sure, but not long into it mostly
everyone was on the same page.

Here is the SLURL to The Theorist Project.  Please keep in mind that this is
not only an information exhibit, its a working classroom - so we are
regularly changing things and some stuff is under construction.  So, pardon
our dust.  :-)
