Brown Bag: Desideria Stockton on Design Choices in Building SL Educational Spaces

April 4, 2008
9-10 SLT (12-1 EDT – local Michigan time)

Dante's Inferno: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Dante%27s%20Inferno/221/6/58

Last week our SLUM Brown Bag group toured the newly released sim, Dante's Inferno - a Second Life learning space designed to model the description of Hell given in that master literary work as a tool to engage students and provide a rich learning experience. This week we are honored to meet again at Dante's to discuss with its design mastermind, Desideria Stockton, the decisions that went into the design of Dante's Inferno as a learning space.

Desideria Stockton, known in real life as Beth Ritter-Guth, is well known as one of the foremost leading educators in Second Life. She was one of the founders and organizers of the first major Second Life educational conference - Second Life Best Practices in Education.
