Abstract Have an idea for an educational event in Second Life?  Ever wonder how to promote your event in-world as well as outside of Second Life?  Attracting anyone to an event in Second Life is quite difficult. Often educators host an event in-world only to have a couple of their colleagues show up.  Want to avoid this embarrassing situation?  This session will introduce you to various methods and tools you can use to ensure that you will have a well attended activity or event in-world that any educator can proudly take a screenshot of.
