Educator commons, freebies, 
and the educator network in virtual worlds
The Metaverse Tour visited Educator Commons on a recent Saturday.  Educator Commons is intended to support the faculty using OpenSim educational simulations. "My idea for the Educator Commons shop is to focus the educator community on how to build vibrant digital learning centers complete with case study simulations, interactive displays, interactive lecture filming sets, voice-enabled discussion spaces" --Kay McLennan

    Jane, Plain Jane:  Part 2, Pack-man
    The writers group at Nara's Nook has started a learning and production project using the guide book "The 90-day novel," by Alan Watt.  To contribute to the project without spending the time on a novel, I am writing a short story or one act play using some of the guidance from the book.

      2017 OSHG: PEOPLE: EDU: Conferences, the web-world version

      Conferences, the web-world version
      An analysis of the activities at  an educational or research-oriented conference indicates that these can be carried out in a virtual world on a web page equipped with streaming video and web-worlds. The key is recognizing the small group activities that can be carried out in a web-world and the large audience activities that work effectively in video streaming.
      • An educational or research-oriented conference can be carried out on web pages.
      • There are two main kinds of professional activity in a conference.
      • Presentations and small group conferences. 
      • Presentations can be streamed.  Small group conferences will fit in a web-world.
