First Partner Meeting in Second Life

The Island Creative Futures was inaugurated.

This was fun! On September 21, the team of "Creative Futures - TPBLeap" met for the first time in the Creative Futures Island in Second Life. There were at least one member of all our partner institutions present.

The objective of this first meeting was to familiarize ourselves with the island. Danny from Dataworks gave us a tour of the visitor's centre and the theatre space where the actual meeting took place. Martin from Inchicore College gave a short talk on the status quo of the project and where we needed to act quickly in order to meet our deadlines. Edith from W-Point presented the relaunch of the Creative Futures homepage created in Joomla and asked the partners to register on it.

The reactions came more swiftly than when we communicated via telephone conference or on our communication platform (in the course of this project we have effectively reduced the e-mail traffic to the minimum). The content revisions necessary for our transfer to the open source e-learning platform started to arrive within days and most partners registered to the new homepage on the spot.

As mentioned above - we also had fun. As some of our partners were not very skilled in Second Life we experienced some funny moments of clumsiness - all in a very amiable spirit. Some of us were very involved with getting our outfit right - even through the presentations. Never mind - playing is in the spirit of Second Life and Creative Futures.
We are all looking forward to meet again in Second Life at the beginning of November in order to keep up to date with the project and - as believers in the Fun Theory - have fun learning.
