I don't know much about it, but I would be highly interested in hearing from those who know. I believe that this will be a topic of much importance for the future.

Hi Gustaf,

Maybe there is. I know there are is some stuff going with 2nd Life and moodle. .LRN being similar with moodle may have some interest on it.

Can someone explain what, besides excellent PR and marketing, the utility of Second Life is? I get the idea of it being an online world / virtual reality, but it is a closed product owned by one company, is it not?

Here are some introductory links for the unaware:

Second Life & Open Source (client side)

OpenACS / DotLRN is due to its community based concept quite well suited as a counter part for SL, which provides in addition to a user-built 3d world with avatars e.g. virtual presence, spacial awareness, instant messaging, multimedia support (playing videos, etc). The interest in SL is especially in the industry very high.

Second Life accepts XML-RPC calls and can be programmed with the Linden Scripting language.

As for the OpenACS/DotLRN conference: Since nobody aside Carlos expressed interest, we have not reserved a SLOT for a SL BOF. Jun, do you have the chance to come to Vienna? Rocael, when will you be arriving?

I think is a very good idea to have this session.

The urls that Gustaf give to us are very interesting and it seems could be a good idea to have some kind of integration.

Best regards

Too bad that I will only be in Vienna on Thursday and Friday, and therefore miss this session, but I think that it is important that .LRN looks at elearning 3D!

Hi Gustaf,

Sorry I can't go to Vienna, that is way too far away from where I am now. Maybe I can help in coding if there is some interest in the future, as I have developed both in .lrn and moodle.

I see on the conference program that there was a BoF on .LRN and Second Life. I'd appreciate it if someone could point me to a summary of what was discussed.

And I'd like to hear from anyone who has pursued any activities along these lines. I've been thinking about this issue in relation to a MacArthur Foundation grant that I might apply for.

Thanks,

Matt
