Sexual harassment in SL

Hi everyone,

I would like throw this question out to you.

Several of my professional contacts/adult students (male and female) have reported being sexually harassessed within 3 to 5 mins of first entering the second life main grid. Their reactions have varied from embarassed to feeling upset and annoyed. It is my feeling that, had they not had a professional reason to return (a langauge course) or a "safe" place to go, i.e. Avalon Island or Kamimo, the experience would… Continue

No fools, no horses at slanguages

What a high-profile conference with an excellent set of speakers the SLanguages conference proved to be. I truly learned a lot and am looking forward to sharing my learning highlights of this conference but also my frustration. My frustration about 'squeezing the second life blood' out of this great event.

Yes, I strongly feel that to create a 'replica of a real conference' in Second Life is just as unimaginative as teaching a language in a 3D… Continue

Motion sickness in Second Life

Something amazing happened to me 2 days ago when I was preparing the event for the LEARNTEC with Moya.

I thought what a cool thing to do to show people at the LEARNTEC the island of Moya in Second Life. Moya who is a pop-artist in the real life has turned an island in Second Life into the most wonderful thing I have come across. A whole island full of art. Moya himself is such a character with his colorful suit, the wings and the little children. Last time he took us in the car… Continue
