The Pixelversity cluster theme ‘Virtuality, Social Identity & Augmented Reality’ continues its activity on Wednesday 15.2. at 18.00 with the second stop on the Virtuality Grand Tour*. Hosted by Owen Kelly, lecturer and researcher at Arcada University of Applied Sciences, Helsinki, we will introduce OpenSim, a open-source virtual world environment, and JokaydiaGRID, a 3D Virtual World focused on Arts and Education.
Participation in the virtual world environment requires in advance to download a OpenSim viewer such as Imprudence, and also to register with JokaydiaGRID. Again the event begins at 18.00 EEST / +2 GMT, and sign in with a Twitter account to Twitvisio #pixelversity channel to hangout.
* A ‘grand tour’ was, in the tradition of classical learning, a travel around cultural landmarks. In this theme we revive the practice online, with each stop on the Virtuality Grand Tour (VGT) exploring different online platform(s) and tools, and is hosted by a particular person.
