Student presentations off to a good start

Rob Jeruben (SL name of one of my students) gave the first poster session today from my Games & SOciety class. He talked about casual MMOs and SL. We had 10 or 11 people come by and most stayed for his whole talk. They asked great questions and he did an admirable job answering them all.People in the audience were impressed with his performance too. One was a blogger from Massively (a blog about MMOs that is widely read). She posted an article about the presentations too - click here to go to the post. An IC administrator came (YAY David Garcia!). Several educators from around the world were there too. An interesting mix of people.  I'll put the schedule for the rest of the talks at the end of this post.

Here are a couple of pictures I took.




Hopefully the rest will come off just as smoothly. I'll post more pictures each day.

Here's the schedule. All times are in Pacific Standard Time - that's what SL uses as it's standard since the company that runs it is in San Francisco.
