Pre-Event TechCollab 08 Blog -- Research in Virtual Immersive Worlds

Tomorrow (May 8, 2008) Case Western Reserve University will be hosting a day long summit on collaborative technologies and community engagement. Although the event is sold out, readers who are interested can participate in TechCollab 08 in SecondLife or watch proceedings following this streaming link.

One of the breakout sessions tomorrow is on Immersive Worlds and Learning and Research. The program features Cory Ondrejka (University of Southern California, Co-Founder of SecondLife), Mark Turner (Cognitive Science, Case Western Reserve University), Edward Lee Lamoureux, (Bradley University New Media Studies), and Stacy Williams (Communication Studies, Case Western Reserve University).

Here is a clip of Stacy's 3 minute trigger video to help contextualize our conversation tomorrow.

I hope you'll continue to give us feedback on the day's events and the arc of activity that we now understand that it has already inspired.
