We were a little unsure whether the streaming video would work, but yesterday, Larry Pixel (aka Larry Johnson) gave a presentation on Second Life from the UNESCO eLearning Conference in Barcelona that was streamed live into NMC Campus to Red Rocks Theater in Research Park.

How truly flat-worldish it was to watch my NMC colleague, who lives in Texas, present in Spain, as I viewed it from a hotel room in Sydney, Australia. I missed out the last bits of the discussion, which I understood had a mixed reaction from the Barcelona audience on the potential of SL for education.
Thanks to the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) staff who made the video streaming work, and “Marko” who was present at the conference and in SL. I am not sure at this time if the video was recorded (we had requested so). BIf you missed it, we are sorry, but there is another opportunity today as the web 2.0 presentation by Brian Lamb, University of British Columbia, will also be live streamed into Second Life:
I hope to be tuning in from another hotel room, in Canberra. I’ll be tuning in, Brian!
