Come join the celebrations!
We will have graduations for the School of Education, including our fab Digital Education students, on 27 November at 3pm.
As in previous years, we will be having a integrated virtual ceremony in Second Life. Please come join us to celebrate our graduates’ achievements, catch up with old friends, and have some fun!
Our virtual graduates will have their names called out in the Usher Hall along with images of our Second Life ceremony. The audience gathered in Edinburgh will applaud our virtual graduates along with those graduating in person, so it’s a very special integrated celebration.
We would be really grateful if you could put Friday 27 November at 3pm UK time in your diaries, and come along to the Virtual University of Edinburgh campus graduation space at Venue at Vue http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Vue/209/39/28 to support the programme and be part of this wonderful celebration. All are welcome – current and prospective students, alumni, and friends of the programme.
Please try to arrive a bit early, and it’s worth checking, well in advance, that you can access SL smoothly. See the technologies handbook here https://www.wiki.ed.ac.uk/display/mscdetech/13.+Second+Life and here is some guidance for viewing media (we’ll be watching the live stream from Usher Hall) http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/fs_media . There’s a recorded video about artificial intelligence project available on the screen at at Venue at Vue so that you can test your media settings 🙂

There will be bubbly, there will be fireworks, there will be much to celebrate!
