Monday November 17 2PM SLT REAL BIZ in SL with Virtual Galapagos Islands

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
