Castor's Retreat - LSE's island on Second Life
Tomorrow we begin the French/English Virtual learning group on Second Life. Last week, there was a last minute surge in interest and we now have 10 students signed up, which nearly matches the French group of 11 students. All but one of the students has had a one hour training session on Second Life and only one of these had any previous experience of the platform. We have decided to hold the first session on Université Blaise Pascal’s site on EdunationI as the plots are sound tight. We thought it may have been confusing for the novice SL students to have mixed sound. If all goes well the following sessions will take place on LSE’s SL island Castor’s Retreat (see image above). It will be interesting to see how these SL novices fare on their first day and how much French and English will be exchanged.
