Next Tuesday (May 8th) from 8:00 am to 9:15 am (PST), students in the virtual world promotions class at Trinity University will share hard-won insights that should be useful to anyone who is building and promoting an institutional presence in Second Life. Students will talk openly about the lessons they learned while designing SLeuth: a social networking service that links new residents with mentors, friends and potential dates.
The student presentation will be held in the amphitheater on Metaversatility Island. (Note: Other than the fact that I am the professor of this course, SLeuth is in no way connected to Metaversatility.)
Metaverse development consultancies,
advertising agencies, and non-profits, please take note. This is a
wonderful opportunity to connect with thoughtful college students who
now have hands-on experience designing and promoting virtual world content.
During the past semester, these students have explored community
building, 3D modeling, viral marketing, machinima, blended reality
events, and the challenge of integrating in-world content with web applications. In these early days of
the Metaverse, it is very difficult to find people of any age who can
claim first-hand exposure to virtual world development.
Everyone is welcome.This event has much to offer to newcomers planning their own virtual world development projects, and the student perspective should be intriguing to more experienced residents and virtual world researchers. To make sure that we save a seat for you, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or send an IM to Carbonel Tigereye in Second Life.
