Thing 19. Create an avatar in Second Life (you need to attend a workshop for this).

Come to a workshop to create a Second Life avatar and learn some basic skills to use it.

Why? To experience and assess a new type of computer interface - an online virtual world.

If you do not already have a Second Life avatar you will need to attend a workshop. Please email me by Friday 16th November to let me know which workshop you can attend.

Please make sure you have an email account that you can access via the web for this session. Gmail is fine .

WORKSHOPS WILL BE IN ROOM 1.015. The last 30 minutes are voluntary, but you will probably want to stay around to learn to use your avatar better.

  • Tuesday 20th November 10am - 11am or 11:30
  • Tuesday 20th November 2pm - 3pm or 2:30pm
  • Friday 23rd November 2pm - 3pm or 3:30pm

If you cannot attend a workshop, please email me and I'll try to arrange another one.

You can create an avatar on your own, then download and install the software and log in and complete Orientation Island - but it will take you longer than the workshop will take. If you do this, you will need to email me your avatar's name so that I can add it to the Murdoch group. Workshop instructions are here.
