Last week on Wedneday the 7th of November we had a trial session with our students in Second Life. Our aim was just to all log in and find each other. We started with a visit to the Social Simulation Research Lab on Hyperborea ( before moving on to what we thought was a photography exhibition (it wasn’t!). A highlight for me was the part where we were chatting while standing in a canal and listening to Juniper play his accordian. Then we visited a sandbox area at Education UK Island. This was a test outing, a preparation for the guest lecturer/taught sessions in SL planned for later this month.
