Interested in setting up your library or museum on Second Life? GSLiS and the Illinois Alliance Library System are offering a number of virtual world courses to help you get started in learning and teaching in virtual worlds such as Second Life.
Setting up Your Library or Museum in Second Life: An Applied Approach is a new course that starts on October 22nd and runs for 6 weeks on Second Life.
“This course is intended for those interested in creating their library or museum presence in SL. Each participant will be lent a small plot of land on which to develop a prototype for their SL library or museum. Instructors will focus on the information, skills, and SL utilities necessary to accomplish that task. Participants will also be given the opportunity to reinforce their learning through hands-on experiences that will result in a model for their SL library or museum.”
