This morning, I had a great time giving a presentation to a group over in the UK via a mash up of Skype and Second Life. I presented to the Eduverse Foundation Symposium. Of course I would have liked to have been there in person but, since it was a virtual world conference, I figured that a virtual presentation made a lot of sense and is less time consuming.
So using the video of Skype on one computer and the world of Second Life on another, I gave a tour of MSIT island and talked about different learning designs for virtual worlds.
Here is an image of my computer with Skype:
And here are some helpful links for those who attended the webinar and anyone else who may be interested.
