Second Life Group Chat

  1. 1. Second Life Group Chat MLani Montgomery
  2. 2. Hi,I’m M’Lani. Welcome to my home. Today I’d like to show you a couple of things about using group chat in Second Life.
  3. 3. Look at the red arrow to the bottom left. This is the Communicate button. Double click it, and you will get a window. See the blue arrow.
  4. 4. The blue arrow is now showing you that as I was taking these pictures, one of my groups sent out a SLURL—a Second Life URL, for an event announcement.
  5. 5. You can see a new tab opened up, and below the text from the IM (Instant Message) appears in open chat.
  6. 6. If you look closely, you can see the tab says the name of the group: ISTE—Educational Technology. But the IM below shows the person who is speaking in the chat room.
  7. 7. These two tabs at the top of my Communication window are for Friends and Groups. I have the Friends tab opened, and I see the people I know who are online now.
  8. 8. Now I have my group tabs open, and all the groups I belong to are shown. You can see I have selected BSU TL Summer 09, our class group.
  9. 9. If I were to double click on this group, a new chat tab would appear up. Touching that tab would open that chat room.
  10. 10. Like this. Now I have an open channel to everyone in class who happens to be online.
  11. 11. When I type here and hit “enter” or the “Send” key here in the window, everyone in class online will get the same message. We can all talk at once no matter where we are.
  12. 12. I can have multiple chats going on in IM. Here you see I have a tab for Miss Annie, Alan, and the BSU class all open at once.
  13. 13. The far left tab, Contacts, takes me back to look at either my friends or groups lists.
  14. 14. I hope pointing out these features will help in our field trip communications. Let me know how I can improve this presentation. Thank you! M’Lani Montgomery
