We have recently extended the SL-Labs University of Derby teaching and research facility on EducationUK Island and are continuing to improve these in preparation for teaching in September. The build has come a long way and we are now joined by volunteer members of Derby Uni staff who are assisting with the build and the teaching preparation. Key members of the team include Biglurch Habercom who is also resident on EducationUK Island and is an experienced builder and scripter.
Derby University has also set up a working party to look into future educational expansion into Second Life. This group will steer ideas at a University level and contribute to the innovative work we are doing in the field of Psychology and Games Development. As these ideas develop we will see the University presence develop further in line with the needs of our students.
