The School of Computing and Mathematics last week hosted a JISC West Midlands Regional Support Centre workshop, attended by over 30 delegates from the post-16 education sector. Keele was well represented by staff from Computing, Psychology and the LDU.
The workshop explored the use of Second Life in education, with a range of live demonstrations showing how the Second Life Grid is being used as an innovative learning resource.
Delegates took a tour of Keele's virtual campus and presentations included a resource for assessing health and safety of film sets, a tour of historical theatres and a model of Centre Point in Birmingham.
The collaborative nature of Second Life was demonstrated remotely from Edinburgh via an avatar speaking and moving around in a virtual presentation area and interacting with delegates' avatars.
