Yesterday, we hosted a “Train for Success” event in our virtual genetics lab. The US-based Gronstedt group arrange these regular events at different Second Life venues.
The tour was well attended by educators and business, and seemed to generate rather a lot of positive comments from our visitors, such as:
“I think this is very cool. There is immersion and reenforcement of learned material.”
and on our use of inworld animations showing molecular changes:
“oh, nice display!”
“Oh that is awesome!”
“very, very cool”
“I am excited and I have no idea what I am seeing!”
If you missed the tour yesterday, the lab is open in Second Life and you can go and try it out any time, or if you would like your own guided tour of our labs, just email us (details on the project web page).
Our thanks to Daden Ltd for arranging the event, and to our visitors for their kind comments and interesting questions.
