SLEDBuilders Listserv

If you are in charge of building a campus or designing instruction in 3D, I invite you to join the _SLEDBuilders_ mail list.

Did you know...

  • Info Island Archipelago is funded by a diverse set of grants and the International Spaceflight Museum was co-founded by a PhD in Aeronautics?
  • The two tiers for builders and scripters? Whether you buy services with micropayment or contract with professional who accept university POs, fees range from $5/hour to $80+. Fully decorated university sims are running $10,000-$20,000?
  • A four-sim corner will accommodate nearly 100 avatars and may be rented by the day for as little as $40?
  • The ICT Library has a demonstration rezzer tool that will let your faculty choose from dozens of classroom settings at the touch of a button?
  • Stanford University has a private island used only for research and MIT purchased their island in a unique way after dealing with some legal issues with the TOS?
  • You can find campus squatters in skyboxes by "Disabling Camera Constraints" and peeking up there?
  • You can log visitors to your email account with a simple script and then offer them membership in your marketing group?
  • Creating a "Student Peer Mentor" program may help your faculty get in and comfortable?

These are the kind of issues we will be discussing on SLED Builders.
