Course starts with virtual world field trips to educational sims in Second Life. Week 2 introduces Machinima and its educational uses. Week 3 is an adventure in the MMORPG World of Warcraft with an educators' guild. Week 4 wraps up the tours on the Bleeding Edge with emerging tech and education that includes virtual, blended and augmented realities.
posted message: As folks are coming together into their groups to collaborate on their Machinima, I'd love to hear how you're going about connecting & working together.
Are you deciding to meet & plan inworld in SL and/or outworld? Are you using a mix of separate tools to build your own framework for your group's collaborative activities or are you using an environment where tools are consolidated, like Google Plus or an equivalent that's commonly used in educational circles?
I think it would be interesting & useful to learn about the different approaches people taking as they go about the business of forming their groups & accomplishing their Machinima projects.
