My Upcoming Second Life Talk at Drexel
New technologies and tools emerge every day in the marketplace to enrich and expand our computing experiences. Social networking, virtual worlds, digital object repositories, all are intriguing and promising. Students dive right in to use these resources for recreational and social purposes. Faculty members wonder if they have merit and relevance in the academic experience.
IRT is starting a “guest lecturer” series to highlight some of these innovations, explain what they are and give examples of their applicability. Technologies featured will include both those that are part of the Drexel supported repertory and those that are currently outside it.
We begin the series with a review of "Second Life" by Jean Claude Bradley. He will demonstrate what it is and discuss how he is using it in his courses and what impact it has. Please join us in Korman 116 at noon on Tuesday, July 24, 2007, to find out about "Second Life" and what it has to offer.
Bring your lunch - IRT will provide drinks and dessert. If you are interested in attending, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can save a cookie for you!
