Education & Non-Profit Organisations in Second Life

One of the problems we encounter in this information age is the enormous quantity of information encountered each day and the danger of overlooking the bleeding obvious.

Checking out the home page of Second Life every now and then to see what is happening can throw up some interesting gems. If you’re like me that may be every blue moon, but this week I happened to notice over in the right side margin an item labelled; “Education & Non-Profit Organizations“.

A perusal of this link will show there is an enormous wealth of information, web and SL based resources for those interested in either setting up an educational or non profit presence in SL. Or for those looking into the opportunities that SL offers in various educational areas.

At the educational level a click on the More… link towards the bottom of the page opens the wiki listing a pretty full list of universities and other education providers in SL.

A quick scan down the list shows that the “Australian Film TV and Radio School: Sydney, Australia” but no others from our neck of the woods. Perhaps its time for someone from the Australian Universities we have featured here on SLOz to pay a visit and add their details…

  1. and even you didn’t deep enough Lowell as there is a link at the top of that page which takes you to a list of all Universities worldwide with their own islands and a lot more detail – here http://simteach.com/wiki/index.php?title=Second

    Definitely need to get the 4 of 5 other oz edus with private islands on that list

    BTW I added that information in spring of 2006 – so its nothing particularly new.

    That’s great Gary. Thanks for the link pointer.

    I am sure the readers of SLoZ would not have found that without your assistance.

    I know I didn’t notice it. Then again, maybe, likewise, you missed my first paragraph:

    “One of the problems we encounter in this information age is the enormous quantity of information encountered each day and the danger of overlooking the bleeding obvious.”
