More Second Life


I seem to be living in Second Life at the moment with setting up the island for ILE, getting my OU tutor group inworld and attending building classes.  On a personal level, I am noticing how long it takes to do stuff (though hopefully some stuff will be re-usable).  Creating a notice board involves making textures (Word then image capture and resize canvas to meet SL requirements then upload to SL), building a notice board (re-usable once one has been created) and applying appropriate texture, then putting in appropriate place and making sure positioned OK.

The major achievement today has been doing some land parceling – should make life easier with managing extraneous objects, builds and debris.

One of my OU students has been asking more about safety in SL.  I think it might be useful for all the projects I’m involved in to put together a quick hints and tips sheet.  Simple things like adding real life name and context to the notes section on an avatar profile so I know who I am talking to.  It seems something more may be needed than the keeping safe advice in the ‘Getting into Seconf Life’ guide Anna and I have been using.

Although the Constuction Junction course is very tiring, I am thoroughly enjoying it and gaining a lot from it.  Hopefully, I will be able to experiment with some of the stuff I have been learning before I forget how to do it! Having access to a course wiki is useful for reference too.

This next week I really must spend some time in real life catching up on some reading and other stuff I am falling behind on.  Still Rome wasn’t built in a day and I can’t work 24/7 if I want to stay sane!
