Here are some introductory links for the unaware:

Top 20 Educational Locations in Second Life


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'll be arriving the 24th. evening. And yes, lets have this session, I'm pretty sure more people will be very interested.

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

I think this is interesting and would attend a session but I don't yet have any experience with it.

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.
