Second Life campus
Our immersive campus, called deep|think, is a large Second Life development, which has been modelled into five distinct, but interconnected small islands, each with a well-defined function:
- a welcome island, to welcome visitor and for orientation purposes;
- a study island, with special purpose meeting spaces, common rooms and exhibition facilities;
- a library island, for access to a variety of resources for study and research---a Beach Bar, is provided nearby for relaxation and fun activities, e.g., chatting, playing pool or listening to music or even dancing;
- a sandbox, for rezzing objects and scripting activities; and
- a central island with our main auditorium and related smaller theatres for large events, such as conferences, workshops, lectures and exhibitions.
