Mark Your Calendars – June Events

Can you believe it?!?!  Tomorrow is June 1st!  I know that some of us are already on summer ‘time’ (don’t like to call it ‘vacation’ since most of us ‘work’ during the summer! LOL), others are about to, and yet others (like myself) have a WHOLE month to go before we reach that time!

In any event, whether you’re already on summer ‘time’ or winding down, I hope you’ll consider joining us for these upcoming Wednesday Workshops. 

DATE:  June 4, 2008

WORKSHOP: Discovery Education Assignment Builder

WORKSHOP:  iStream, uStream, Live Streaming In Second Life ™


DESCRIPTION:  One of the biggest trends in Web2.0 is live video streaming.  From uStream to Operator 11 to Seesmic to Qik, it is becoming easier and easier to broadcast yourself live to the masses.  So what about Second Life?  How can Live Video streaming be incorporated into SL and what can it be used for?  First learn practical ways to bring live video in-world and then let’s see just how far along the cutting edge we can surf!
