DIS received money from a HEFCE mini-grant in March 2007 to develop a campus on Linden Labs Second Life. This blog will act as a diary of progress as we roll-out a campus during 2007 and early 2008.
There is an awful lot to learn, as I've found out over the last month or two - in fact, the last week has proved to be the steepest learning curve so far in my clumsy attempts to manipulate objects, build things and avoid bumping into people.
This project is based at the Department of Information Science at Loughborough University, where it is managed by Dr James Dearnley and Dr Mark Hepworth. The collaborative nature of SL, and the interest shown in developing VLEs in SL, means that we welcome input, comment and interest in what we're doing.
