We will be using this space to document the path of this module as well.

Last night, Thursday the 24th o fMay , we had the second session of our new module: Teaching in Virtual worlds.
The module is being offered to teaching and training staff and run at 8pm GMT on thursdays and will hold for 7weeks….5wereks more.
Last night’s class was on virtual environments in general, how they function, conventions governing behaviours, communities, etc.

FINALE…for the set of 2011

May 25, 2012

After weeks of preparation, the students pulled togther all they had learned in their final projects in which they had to work in groups.  They had to  navigate the challenges of working in a virtual team to create an artefact which represented the theme “Virtuality”

Guest judeges were Sitearm Madonna and Lisa Elfay. We also had 2 special guests Jaynine Scarborough who had been of immense support to the students from when we visited her “thousand rooms” on a field trip

As they say a picture is more than a thousand words and video…..
