Studio in the Virtual World
In addition to the physical and online environments, the Media Zoo has an established 3D Second Life.
The presence in the 3D world of Second Life opens up new avenues of disseminating the research findings of the Institute of Learning Innovation and supports the integration of learning technologies into everyday teaching regardless of level, subject discipline or mode of instruction.
The 3D world of Second Life is one of the most rapidly expanding 3D MUVEs (multi-user virtual environment) available on the Internet today, with nearly 10 million users, creating themselves as avatars in all shapes and sizes. The world is developed by its users for many purposes.
A number of highly successful Institute of Learning Innovation projects have been run in Second Life, and the Island is open to all visitors.
Please take the opportunity walk around the virtual oil rig, view the 3D cinema or take a motor launch out for a spin.
