Come by Athena Isle for next week's screening where we'll learn about Charles Darwin's historic journey. In honor of Darwin’s legacy, the University of Cincinnati has planned a two-year celebration of the sesquicentennial anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species. What if students could participate in a re-creation of Darwin’s historic journey to the Galapagos Islands and see indigenous species in their natural habitats? What if the photographs, videos, and materials collected by students on their trips to study Darwin’s work could be shared with the broader public? At the University of Cincinnati’s virtual replica of the Galapagos Islands in Second Life, they can. Learn more at Galapagos Islands in Second Life Educause Review
We had a great show today with the Vivartia 7 Day Magic Bakery. What a cool build! We had a nice chat with Boliver Oddfellow of Involve, the virtual world developer that created the bakery.
