  1. 1. Matt Hibbard Virtual Worlds Practicum SUNY Empire State College Dr. Eileen O’Connor January 25, 2014
  2. 2.  There are many alternative virtual world options other than Second Life that use an open source code for creation and rent space for less Kitely  Logicamp  Oliveira Virtual Lands  SASSO  Zetamex  Others, visit http://www.hypergridbusiness.com/opensimhosting-providers/ for more options   This presentation will use KITELY as an example to illustrate the benefits
  3. 3.  KITELY   Allows you to visit worlds created by others, similar to Second Life. Similar look, feel, and controls. Allows you to experiment creating your own virtual world  Free = gets you one region you can build in for a     limited time (6 hours) $15 per month open unlimited time to build. Limited to 15,000 prims (building blocks) and 10 avatars $50 per month = 4 regions, 60,000 prims, and 40 avatars $100 per month = 16 regions, 100,000 prims, and 100 avatars Second Life regions run from $75 per month to $300 per month
  4. 4.    Doesn’t have the community of Second Life Is that a problem? Perfect for educators  Private space for…  Meetings  Training  Simulations  Roleplaying  Does not require high technical skills Korolov, M. (2013, April 8). Opensim 101: Renting land. Retrieved from http://www.hypergridbusiness.com/2011/04/opensim-hosting-101/
  5. 5. My free island to build on. I haven’t started yet.
  6. 6. Kitely Welcome Center, one of the public worlds you can visit
  7. 7.   Great place to host classes. Meetings, trainings, conferences, etc. Built under creative commons licensing. You can essentially transfer it to your own island for free and then modify it.
  8. 8. Hallway of lecture rooms / conference rooms
  9. 9. Open Sim Technology allows you to build virtual content outside of the game and import it. I envision building machines with critical components and importing them into a space like this and doing a virtual “walk-around”
