There is a section of the VWBPE conference that is happening on OpenSim on Thursday, March 19. Why? because educators understand the advantages of the OpenSim Metaverse. You can even hypergrid in to the conference on the 19th if you want to.

http://vwbpe.org for information.

Seanchai Library will be at the conference with four of our members on a panel discussing what we do and why we do it...
We will also be presenting examples of our storytelling. And of course we will be talking about our home in Kitely.
We'd LOVE it if you can attend.

Here is more info on the what and the when...
Seanchai: A Virtual Library Out Loud

We were over there this morning testing things out, and HG works great directly from Kitely!
There is a hypergate at Seanchai Library if you wish to use it.

or you can get there by:
grid.avacon.org:8002
and then look for Rockcliffe University region there, at 251/250/23

See you there!!

Worth noting that they are using TeamSpeak for voice on the Avacon grid (see VWBPE site). Also, times are not great for Europeans.
