Missed the SecondLife Best Practices in Education Conference on May 25?

I don’t know if any of you got a chance to pop up in Second Life last Friday as I suggested in my last post.

I did (and I have a snapshot to prove it ;-).

Best Practices in Education - May 25, 2007

I spent about an hour listening to the presentation by the IBM folks after walking through the poster sessions. I also took the opportunity to make a small donation to the Memorial Hokie Fund Spirit in-world via one of the donation boxes available in Second Life.

The conference was really interesting and fun at the same time (check out the Flickr photo pool), although I had to admit that I finally decided to follow the afternoon sessions on Second Life Cable Network due to technical problems I had with the audio channel.

Anyway, if you didn’t get a chance to check out this international conference organized in Second Life last Friday, you can have a look at the following presentations made available by some of the keynote speakers:

Engagement in SecondLife Learning, Sarah Robbins, aka IntelliGirl (Ball State University)

Loyalist College Experience in Second Life, Ken Hudson, aka Kenny Hubble (Loyalist College)

The Salamander Project: creating a Community of Practice to make a searchable database of Learning Objects in SecondLife, Jonathon Richter, aka Wainbrave Bernal (The University of Oregon)

Conference proceedings will be made available in the future in RL and SL.
