Graduate Film Students in SL
The University of Kansas is offering a graduate-level film class this semester that leans heavily into cyber culture. Students explore production of machinima and the rapidly changing issues of producing in cyberspace. The article in the Kansan goes into more detail about the “New Media and Cyber Culture” class. Though it doesn’t speak much to the sort of interaction they intend to use Second Life for I think it has the potential to be an appropriate platform for students to develop both production and critiquing skills. It will be interesting to follow the progress of this class and hear the thoughts from both the instructors and students at the end of the semester. Hopefully someone will blog its progress.
