Sorry some of you could not make it to the CURA/BCcampus site, or couldn't find us. SL is a bit of a challenge on both these issues. We have only been working on our site for a very short time (about three weeks) and it is easy to get lost at the site, we do all the time LOL. However, that is also what makes it fun. A couple of prostitutes from Spain showed up the other day trying to pander their wares. You just never know what is going to happen.
Though I have been in SL since September that time has basically been learning different SL skills and not showing others around. It is a bit of a challenge figuring out how to keep avis together especially with varying skill levels. Much different than having a captive audience in a lecture theatre. But everyone was really patient and helpful, especially WebbedFeat, and most (that we know of except for those still in the metaverse - there was one still in the holodeck when I returned later LOL) survived.
ETUG (BC Educational Technology Users Group), a group associated with BCcampus, is having a workshop about SL at its annual Spring Workshop in May. The workshop is being held here at Thompson Rivers University and I will be leading a group, along with a number of other leaders, on a scavenger hunt. So, some of the experience from today will help in planning that workshop. [A side issue: I am working with computer services to provide a lab for the workshop and DO THEY ever have issues about security for SL. I have to do some research on that to ease their minds.]
I would be happy to lead another group at some point if there is interest. Possibly visiting some of the interesting sites that have been listed here or do a session on building. I really like the idea of building objects to represent concepts. I have found the building tools in SL to be very rich, especially once one learns how to use textures and scripts with prims; it seems that the only limitation to what one can build is one's imagination (but being a philosopher I know that there are logically impossible things that can't be built LOL).
