From an email from our pal KJ Hax (Kevin Jarrett irl) about an event you may not want to miss. Pop into ISTE Island (SLurl below) for what looks to be an informative hour this very evening!
Just a quick heads up regarding tomorrow’s ISTE Speaker Series session, targeted specifically for the higher education community … join Marcius Dowding (RL: Larry Dugan) and Crash Thebaud (RL: Terry Keys) who will be presenting their work on the SUNY LIVE (Learning in Virtual Environments) project, which was created to give the opportunity for up to 64 campuses the opportunity to investigate the uses of VLE’s. 22 campuses signed up and participated in this year long project, utilizing this “donut” approach to island developing and training. The results, trials, tribulations and successes will be discussed at this presentation, which will utilize voice. Please ensure you have a working voice setup prior to the event. Location: ISTE Island Bandshell: http://slurl.com/secondlife/ISTE%20Island/128/128/25
Time: SLT (click here for your local time zone)
See you there!
While you’re there, mosey on up to Headquarters and take a good gander at the new SL entry portal resources that have been baking up there for a month or so. I blogged about it a while back, and it’s come a long way since, due to the dedicated efforts of ISTE volunteers who have tirelessly realized the joint vision of Linden Lab and ISTE. You might take a minute to click on that big ol’ FEEDBACK sign there to offer your opinion and suggestions about how the entry might be improved.
From fearless ISTE Second Life pioneer Kittygloom Cassady, “Currently, an educator visiting the education page of the Second Grid web site (http://secondlifegrid.net/programs/education) can sign up for using a simplified registration process and at the end will be dropped directly on ISTE Island for more resources and educator-friendly help.
Cheers, all! And see you tonite if you can make it!
