Great Time at Penn State

Why 3D Presentation at Penn State.

Today I gave a presentation at Penn State called "Why 3D?" The presentation was a lot of fun and I had a great audience and met some awesome people. The great thing about the presentation was that I got to see a number of alumni of our program and meet a few readers of Kapp Notes and some really interesting people doing some really interesting distance learning work.

It is always great to see alumni being successful and hearing what they are doing. They are involved with some very interesting activities. From developing online programs in a number of topics to creating exciting learning areas in Second Life around the topic of network security.

Also, meeting readers of the blog and talking to them about learning and elearning, it is a lot of fun and interesting especially since often a blogger doesn't have a chance to meet readers in "real life."

I always hope that the entries are helpful and I really appreciate all of my readers and the feedback in person or whether they comment or just "lurk" on the blog itself. Although I encourage everyone to comment, especially if you haven't commented on a blog before. It's easy.

Anyway, a great deal of fun and Penn State is such a huge school especially compared to Bloomsburg University.

So thanks everyone for being such great hosts at the presentation.

So here are a few pictures taken by Amanda.

Thank you for the great presentation. It was very interesting to see the different ways Second Life can be used for instruction. I especially enjoyed the discussion of the ID strategies and considerations. Your presentation helped me see the value in virtual learning environments more than any other session I have attended.

Thanks again.
