New module starts on 7th February 2013

January 29, 2013

A new intake of students will start on the module on Thursday 7th February. They will come from the School of Art, Design & Printing at DIT through the Optional Module Programme for Fine Art, Design, Visual and Critical Studies and also from other parts of the Real World and Second Life through Dublin Virtually Live. If you are not a registered DIT student and would like to take the module please email sitearm(at)gmail(dot)com for application details.

DIT students must send the following details to acuppatae(at)gmail(dot)com

  1. your real name
  2. your avatar’s name in Second Life
  3. your programme title, code and year
  4. your email address
  5. your student number

New participants should read through this blog to get a sense of what the module offers and, in particular, read page 8 (see column to the right) titled ‘Getting into Second Life’ to make sure your pc is up to spec. You will also find details on joining Second Life, which you must do before the first class.

All participants must also friend Acuppa Tae and Locks Aichi in Second Life saying that you intend taking the module.

The class will meet in Dublin Virtually Live at 8.00 pm (Irish Time or 12 noon SL Time) on Thursday 7th February.

If you are new to Second Life it is a good idea to explore the environment before the module starts. You should be familiar with moving your avatar around, interacting with others and be able to use voice inworld. You will not receive technical tuition on Second Life during class time – it is up to each participant to learn how to live, act and behave in the environment in advance.

Acuppa Tae and Locks Aichi look forward to meeting you next week!
