Metaverse U and me

Metaverse U was a fantastic conference/workshop  that i attended last week at Stanford. I planned on adding my notes here but I don’t think can add anything that hasn’t already been said and aggregated at technorati + metaverse U 

My course syllabus was quoted in an article titled A Disruptive Technologyin University World News in January. I stumbled upon the link while looking for this article from Government Technology that features the work of Texas universities using Second Life and a few pictures from my flickr page. I figured now is a good time to make a blog post where i could keep all these links together. Maybe now i won’t have to search for these articles when I try to explain what I’ve been working on. 

Young Librarians Talk about The Future of Their Professions is a piece from the Chronicle of Higher Education that I really like because the article isn’t about virtual worlds. It is about 8 librarians that are changing the field, I’m honored to be included with the other librarians. 

Teachers, College Students Lead a Second Life is short article printed in USA Today that aslo features my Flickr page…It is a shame that the pictures show me leading one of my classes to the Virginia Tech Memorial in SL and that less than a year later we have had another fatal shooting spree at a university campus… 

Educators Explore Virtual Worlds   is a nice write up from the Office of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin featuring the Educators Coop. 

 Second Life Worth a Second Look   is an article promoting a talk i gave at the Texas Advanced Computer Center back in May. 

Professors in Pajamas is an article written by the Second Life News Network SLNN about the Grand Opening of the Educators Coop.
