Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education 2014

VWBPE opened earlier today for its annual conference, beginning with a keynote address from High Fidelity’s Philip Rosedale, Founder and former CEO of Linden Labs. You can watch the live recording here.

As of this publishing the VWBPE’s website is currently under maintenance due to ‘high traffic’, and so there is a temporary schedule that is showing at this time. They have been busy updating it, and it should be back sometime this evening.

This will be my first time attending this conference, and opted to volunteer this time. Have met many residents who are students IRL, most referred by their professors. I spoke to a few who never heard of Second Life, until the news of Facebook’s recent acquisition of Oculus Rift. Interesting? Why yes 🙂

VWBPE will also be streaming live from OSgrid as well.  Click here for the live feed.

Also I’m including a link to Daniel Voyager’s Blog article covering Philip Rosedale’s Keynote Address.

LL CEO Ebbe Altberg will be delivering his keynote speech on Friday @ 1pm SLT so be sure to mark that on your planner as well.

Thanks for stopping by, and hope to see you all at some of the events~
