  2. 2. Outline <ul><li>How a creative space can be completed with ICT tools? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ICT Tools </li></ul></ul><ul><li>How a creative space can be translated to virtual spaces? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Virtual environments </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>SecondLife </li></ul></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Creative Spaces <ul><li>Creative spaces require careful design. </li></ul><ul><li>Many factors should be taken into account in order to prepare them so that they promote activity. </li></ul><ul><li>The general atmosphere, furnishings, decoration and available facilities all affect the nature of the creative space. </li></ul><ul><li>Creative activity requires easy and fast access to available information. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Creative Spaces <ul><li>There are many ways to access needed information and some of them might require a lot of time and effort. </li></ul><ul><li>Provided that the infrastructure is ready, ICT tools offer a fast and easy way to access needed information. </li></ul><ul><li>The information can be obtained through search in Internet or by accessing experts, who are not present in the same place. ICT </li></ul>
  5. 5. Creative Spaces <ul><li>tools provide a quick and comfortable gateway to access the huge source of information available on Internet and make it possible to meet other people virtually just in time. </li></ul><ul><li>ICT tools and virtual environments also provide interesting technology for designing different types of environments and testing ideas. </li></ul>

  11. 11. In Addition, Two Additional Requirements: <ul><li>Codec - &quot;compressor/de-compressor“ - makes the audio/video data &quot;small enough&quot; to be practical for sending over expensive network connections.
