Updated "snapshot" of UK HE / FE activity in Second Life

(If you are one of the people who look at my blog for pictures of the Outer Hebrides then a. there aren't any today and b. this post will make little or no sense to you. Best move on.)

As part of their range of Second Life activities, the Eduserv Foundation hired me to do a series of "snapshot" reports, looking at the take-up of SL within the UK Higher and Further Education sector. The update of the first report, containing some new examples of how and where Second Life is being used in UK Higher and Further Education, can now be downloaded.

If you are doing anything constructive in Second Life, then feel free to publicise, pass on to other people, and use in any way that helps you in your Second Life activities.

There will be further snapshots in March, and September, 2008. In the meantime, if you are doing something on the SL grid connected with UK HE / FE, then please get in touch.

  1. Just wanted to pass on some research activities I have been doing in Second Life, based at The University of Salford. As an Institution we are currently looking at the possibility of developing a University location that will hopefully combine many of our research, teaching and enterprise activities, without creating an empty 3D model of the university.Documentation of my own research in Second Life can be found at…http://www.paulsermon.org/sylgrut/ http://www.paulsermon.org/liberate/Look forward to hearing more about EduservBest Regards, Paul Sermon (Professor of Creative Technology, The University of Salford)
