Sharing 3D project experiences

My earlier MOO research and experiences led to my interest, not to say fascination, with 3D for LL. It motivated me to join the experimental activities at LanguageLab, before they opened their doors in 2007. See a brief impression of what we did here . It was a most inspriring experience, we had great fun and learned a lot! It was also the start of my avatar network thanks to which I am happy to have come to know some of you.
And all that led, I am sure, to the project ViTAAL and my involvement in, what I hope to consider, the AVALON partner project NIFLAR.
Looking forward to collaborating with you!
PS It so happens that WP2 in NIFLAR is also concerned with task and activity development and related 3d world functionalities

NIFLAR AVALON collaboration

AVALON partner, Klaus Hammermüller, travelled all the way from Vienna to join the SURFnet OpenSim project's 2009 final meeting, sharing experiences and know-how and discuss further collaboration with NIFLAR. We exchanged ideas for further collaboration between Avalon and Niflar, such as exchanging 3D content and tasks.

Klaus also presented his ideas on a follow up network proposal to Brussels involving NIFLAR, AVALON and other potential partners interested in future experiments and… Continue

Hi Ton, I got an email from you off here but now I don't know how to respond and cant find it ;-)

Anyway, unfortunately the Italian course is over. We are currently writing up the course in a closed wiki. It will be made public as soon as it is ready (hopefully by end of August) and then people are free to do what they want with it.

However, if you would like to know more about it, I would be more than happy to talk to you in skype or meet in Second Life.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Dear Ton,
I'm a librarian at the University of Manchester and I'm researching foreign language learning in SL and its implications for resource provision in academic libraries. I am doing this work as an Arcadia Fellow at Cambridge University Library. I would like to interview people who are actively involved in foreign language learning in SL (both students and teachers) and, preferably, who also have experience of using academic libraries as part of their foreign language learning. However, I would still like to hear from you even if you only fit into one of these two target groups. I imagine the interview won't be longer than approx. 30 min. I would be very grateful if you would be willing to participate. The interviews will take place in SL (or via Skype) over the next 3 weeks (until early June). Please send me a message and we can arrange a convenient date and time. You are very welcome to pass this message on to relevant colleagues. Many thanks!

Hi it is Luisa here from AVALOn. Just a very quick question. Did you use the Teen second life grid for your vitaal project?

Hi Heike,
Will pass your ideas on to the coordinator. I am sure we can do these things (reciprocal membership and presentations). One of the differences between our projects is that in NIFLAR the 3d focus is only a part in which 3 partners are involved.

Being responsible for 3d word development I hope to explore collaboration or even a joint initiative. IMO, it might be practical and also interesting from a budget and sustainability point of view.
Ciao Ton

Hi Ton,

This is soooo great to have you sign up on this site. May I ask whether we can equally sign up on niflar.eu?

Your project is of real interest to us and if I may, can we invite you to give us a little overview of Niflar at an in-world meeting?

Oh, yes, then it was Karlsruhe where we had a glas of wine together, talking about god and the world and language learning with multimedia ... :-)
