Dundee Event - HND Computer Games Consultation

Unfortunately we have had to cancel the above event in Dundee on the 8th June 2009 due to insufficient numbers. This is the first time we have had to cancel an event but we strongly felt that there was limited representation from the field to consult with at this point in time. An e-mail to those who had registered for the Dundee Event was sent this morning giving alternative options.

The good news is that the Glasgow event on Thursday 4th June is going ahead so please, if you have not had time to register now is the time to do so by clicking on the URL below:

Second Life + Moodle = Sloodle!

Second Life Social Presence in Virtual Worlds ...Image by VRider goes Web3D via Flickr

Mari Cruz GarcĂ­a who is a Learning Technologist at Carnegie College has created a course explaining how to use virtual worlds in education. She says:
The course I have created is very humble, but I thought that it could be useful for beginners as it illustrates what you can do in Sloodle with very limited budget. The course includes free Linden scripts and objects, as well as a backup copy of the Moodle course. The only object which I couldn't display is the Presenter, until the IT Department can review the firewall settings that are currently blocking it.
I say: she's being modest and you should check this out at:

The course is also available via SMUG (the Scottish Moodle User Group) at:

Access in Second Life is at:

Thanks Mari.

HND Games - Give us Your Opinion

The Scottish Qualifications Authority are currently working on creating a new qualification - HND Games Development. As part of the process it is important that we get as many views as possible on what is required. To do that we would appreciate it if you could complete the following survey:

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=60ncuuOlp73guIcbtAIOrA_3d_3d

It's very short with less than a dozen questions and will take less than three minutes of your time but will be invaluable in structuring this award.

The survey will close at 5pm on the 5th of May so please don't hesitate to follow the link and complete the survey.

Click Here to take survey

Thanks in advance.
