VWEDU [region in review]

In this post I will introduce one of my other region called VWEDU an educational focused regions that I built as part of the Masters (MA) in Education in Virtual Worlds (taken at the UWE, University of the West of England, UK). 

The brief was to create a working educational experience and write up a report once completed. The region is a var region (2x2) and there are four main areas to the build. The landing area is a generally student area for discussions and preparing for the other areas of the space. Directly in front of that is a region that is based on activity based learning where students will learn about the basics of virtual movement, object interaction, communication, basic building and avatar appearance which they will need for the main learning experience that I built as part of the course. 

To the left of the landing point is the learning experience that I built which is aimed at counsellors, psychotherapists, trainers and supervisors and focuses on LGBTQ+ awareness and ethical practice. Both the learning experiences built use a guided tour archetype in the design where the learners move through the different stages of the experience. You can get a copy of the report that explains the building and the decisions I made on the region if you would like to know more about it. 

If you have any questions or would like a tour of the region please get in touch I a more than happy to do that. The region is open to the Hypergrid (HG) and you can use this address:

AvatarFest 2018

AvatarFest 2018

Its that time of year and I have started to build my exhibit for this years final AvatarFest 2018. Out and Proud will be honored to exhibit and has done for all years that it has been running. What I enjoy is seeing the creativity of the Opensimulator community and the exhibits are awesome every year. For more information about this years festival visit the website (here). It all starts with a plot ... 

 As I have built out the build it became clear that I was creating a performance area and decided to ask if it would be ok to have a live performance on the plot during the event. Han agreed and I have booked SingerGirl Mode to play on Saturday 6th October at 3:15 to 4:15pm (PDT) and I am really looking forward to it. This being the last year it felt like it needed to go out with a bang and having seen SG perform many times I knew she was the performer for the task. 

The build has been moved over to the event region and it is looking amazing (even if say so myself) ... I have put out the poster with information and landmarks to AvatarFest 2018 on all Out and Proud regions (grid.outandproud.life:8002:Out and Proud welcome).
