Welcome To Creativity and Multicultural Communication
Creativity & Multicultural Communication, August 15, 2011.
Here's a MOOC I've been helping out with a bit, setting up the gRSShopper software on another site. "CMC11 is an open online course that over 13 weeks explores the domain of Creativity and global communication in multidisciplinary venues . Participation is open to everyone and there are no fees or subscriptions required." It's a work in progress, and if there are link or software errors, they're my fault, not the organizers'.

Second Life is Dead - Prepare for an OpenSim World
John Rogate and Marjon Klapwijk,

Oh, hey, I don't want to say I told you so, but according to this presentation at a Sloan Consortium conference, "Linden Labs and Second Life are rapidly becoming a dying entity. Schools are flocking to alternative Virtual World solutions. Now there is a low/no cost and secure alternative to Second Life. OpenSimulator is a rapidly spreading alternative. Virtual Worlds are coming." Now that we are dispensing with the closed-world corporate version, perhaps we can now get on with the project of building a web of three-dimensional sites. Now that would be a bandwagon I could envision getting on to! Via James OReilly post in the e-Learning in Developing and Developed Countries Facebook group.
