First year meets Second Life

Our First year had a taste of a Second Life this week when they were introduced to the software. A strange and random event ensued with the building of bizarre and surreal objects and the deformation of avatars.  

Good fun and an intro in virtual reality which is fast becoming an new source for employment as more virtual worlds come into existence and more elearning resources are developed. The 3d and texturing skills of the students can become useful in this area.

Then the rest of the class experience ;-)
