Second Life demo

September 12, 2007 at 4:56 am Leave a comment

I did a demo of Second Life for Adult Education Week recently. There was a disappointing turnout – I don’t think it was promoted very well – but the 1 lecturer, 2 psychologists and a smattering of Library staff who attended were entertained and, I think, persuaded to try it for themselves. I was lucky to come across a couple of avatars in a library in SL and one of them entertained us by turning himself into a multi-coloured dragon and several other incarnations. I get a lot of pleasure out of this programme and am doing another virtual librarianship course starting in next week. There is so much to learn about the world and how to do things in it. My new home PC is in for repairs (it went into a regular reboot cycle and couldn’t get started) so I am currently unable to visit SL from home. It’s very frustrating. Can’t play Oblivion either and am having to spend more time on housework!!
