  • 1. Matt Hibbard Virtual Worlds Practicum SUNY Empire State College Dr. Eileen O’Connor January 25, 2014
  • 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.  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.    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. My free island to build on. I haven’t started yet.
  • 6. Kitely Welcome Center, one of the public worlds you can visit
  • 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. Hallway of lecture rooms / conference rooms
  • 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”
