Title Lessons Hard and Wonderful From A Faculty Member Pioneering in OpenSim
Author(s): Joe Essid
Date Saturday, March 19 06:00
Location: Central Auditorium
Abstract This presentation will explore lessons learned after the migration to OpenSim by an experienced teacher who had worked in SecondLife for four years. The goal will be to give participants a pioneer's report on what new settlers may need to learn, where old skills sufficed, and what resources have proven essential in the DIY world of a new and relatively unpopulated new grid.  Participants will get a pioneer's rucksack with URLs, even scripts licensed for noncommercial use under Creative-Commons.
