Virtual Graduation – Join Us! :-)

Hello All,

The MSc team would like to invite you and your friends to the MSc in eLearning’s Virtual Graduation tomorrow, Thursday 25th, 15.00 GMT. The virtual graduation is held in Second Life with parallel live stream from McEwan Hall, Edinburgh. We use text chat to communicate. Instant Message Frank Lassard if you have any issues.

Location – Venue @Vue (just northeast of Holyrood Park).

Please make sure your QuickTime is up to date so you can watch the streamed event from McEwan Hall. All details regards updating Quick Time, playing media in Second Life, gesturing (applauding), chatting, taking pictures are on the Vue Wiki.

Hope to see you all there. Frank is dusting off his UoE tartan at the moment and building the virtual bar. Looking forward to it.

The Twitter Hashtag to follow/post to will be #edslgrad


PS. If interested, screen shots from Past Virtual graduations are available here.

Vidiowiki – a community of researchers

Introducing Vidiowiki – “Research, in video . . . a community of researchers from around the world talking about their work and why it’s interesting, in 3 minutes or less. . . ”

I saw a demonstration of *this* tool at a meeting last week and I thought it might be of interest to HUB readers. Full disclosure at this point – this was built by students here at the University of Edinburgh, School of Informatics – but they do have an impressive user group building. And research groups or Universities can purchase their own private space, if required or join for free to the main Vidiowiki space.

Hopefully this is of interest/use to someone!
