First Class - in real life and in second life!
Can't go to the meeting? Bring that meeting to you!This week John scheduled a meeting in Real Life which I couldn't attend. Thankfully I got a chance to participate in Second life. John taught the students in person on campus, whilst I attended online. I really appreciated being able to attend my lecture, I wish this was an availability for other modules!
Missing meetings but meeting lecturers;
Meeting John- 9th of October;
The meeting was a brief introduction, a chance for John to meet and greet his new bunch of students for Semester one 2017/18. He gave us a tour of the DIT online campus and spoke briefly about the module entails.

We met John in second life in the DIT Campus. He spoke a little more on the module and the breakdown of assessment. John encouraged us to become familiar with teleportation, flying and socialising in Second Life. He also gave us a to-do by next class. Bartek created our Facebook group for us to communicate.

|Petting squirrels in London|
I went to London and explored the city. I suddenly saw this little fur ball roll across my screen. I tried to pet him by ''Touching'' him, but it didn't work. An instant message popped up on screen from the user''hey...how you doin'' ..... Err? Oh my god.
|Rushing around in Russia|
When you walk passed other users in Second Life, you can sometimes hear them speak if they have their microphones on. I heard two people speaking Russian which I thought was insane. I've never been to Russia, but I would love to find a place in Second Life I've been to, to compare it to Real Life!
