recent ‘VWorlds: Libraries, Education, and Museums conf’ now online

Troy McLuhan just posted this helpful info pointer:

“Last weekend, the ‘Virtual Worlds: Libraries, Education, and Museums
Conference’ was held in SL.  Now some of the presentations are
available online.

Some that might interest this group in particular are:

* “Persistent Worlds: Will They Ever Go Away?” Presented by Dr. Susan
Hazan — Slides

* “Virtual Museums: When Do They Become “Real”?” Presented by Annie
Platoff — Slides with lots of text.  She covers the ISM and the
‘Splo, among others

* “An Overview of Science-Related Stuff in Second Life” Presented
by…. me! — Audio and slides, packaged as video [10 mins]

The titles and abtracts are all listed at the URL below.  Some of
them, like those listed above, come with the presentation in some
archival form.

Troy also reviewed the conference at his own blog.  I’ve added Troy’s presentation to the Scilands category on my blogroll – an outstanding quick overview of the history of science exhibits and uses in SL.
