Open University Events In Second Life For November

Tori Landau (in Second Life) of the Open University has granted me permission to post information about three events planned for The Open University at Deep Think within Second Life this month. These events are most likely to be aimed at educators or those working within education. I am not a representative of The Open University so I can’t answer any questions about these events.

First things first, the sim is general rated, so if you are going to visit then please mind your P’s and Q’s and dress appropriately.

From Tori Landau:

The 3 events planned for November at Deep Think are below. If anyone has suggestions for the topic for the Open Session please feel free to contact me.

Wed 7th – Rooftop Bop at 2pm slt / 10pm GMT

No decor theme this month, however, there is a prize of $100L for best in casual wear. So chill, relax and have a laugh listening to DJ Anjoux Herbit spinning tunes and taking requests for two hours. Location is the rooftop of the communal building at Deep Think West



Mon 12th – Monday Meet at 1pm slt / 9pm GMT

Donna Z. Davies (SL: Tredi Felisimo) giving the talk, “An Ethnographic study of relationships created in online virtual worlds and how they influence real lives”.

Donna is an assistant professor at the George S. Turnbull Portland Center, University of Oregon.

This Meet will be in the communal room at Deep Think West.


Tuesday 27th – Open Session at 1pm slt / 9pm GMT

Informal discussion for which a topic can either be decided beforehand or on the night or if someone even wishes to give a talk on the night that can be done too. Location is the rooftop of the communal building at Deep Think West.
