Since 2006, we have been working and playing in the best-known consumer Virtual Reality (VR) environment, Second Life, which boasts somewhere between 600,000 and one million users. We have found it to be a great way to provide training to our clients because of its:
Strong vendor support with regular updates.
Free user accounts.
Communication resources, including text chat, voice chat, and language translation.
Presentation resources, such as in-world video and web content.
Robust 3D authoring tools, giving us the ability to mock up real world locations and situations.
Real-time instructor and student interactivity.
We offer organizations that wish to engage their workforces through Second Life the following services:
Consulting on establishing a user-friendly and policy compliant presence in-world.
External and in-world training for employees on accessing Second Life and using its resources.
Development support to create customized role-play learning experiences.
To participate in our in-world courses, learners need to create a free Second Life account and go through orientation.
Our Quick Start Guide and YouTube video help reduce the learning curve. Once learners complete orientation, we can provide further training in-world at: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Lyashko/208/244/2503.
