VWER Grid: A New Start For Educators
Location: VWER Grid
AJ Kelton worked very hard to get 15 of us onto the new grid, hosted by Reaction Grid, to hear guest speakers John "Pathfinder" Lester and Jokay Wollongong. The transcript will be a lively one.
We broke our old record of attendees, and the grid proved stable for "native" accounts and Hypergrid visitors.
This is looking more and more like the future for educators. For those who call OpenSim a desert, I'd add "I think we have an oasis."
And for those who claim the avatars and gear don't match SL, I'd say "give it time. A lot of clever folks are building and sharing their content, just as we do at our K-12 schools, colleges, and universities."
With Jokaydia Grid ramping up past 80 sims now, with over 1000 educators involved, more oases are on the horizon, not mirages.
