Today's Immersive Education Technology Group meeting will take place on Sun's island in Second Life. Please join us if you'd like to participate. The next meeting will take place in Wonderland!


Thanks, everyone, for today's meeting. We had a full house (more than expected
on Friday afternoon) and although I didn't take a formal count it seemed as if
we had between 30 and 40 people gathered today. Below is a link to the Education
Grid page that we reviewed today, followed by an audio transcript of the entire
conversation (in MP3 format):

If someone would like to run the audio file through a speach-to-text converter
so that we have a text transcript as well please let me know; we'll link the
audio transcript (and any text transcript) to the Web page itself for our records.

we'll have a 1 hour meeting this afternoon (Friday Feb 1st) in Second Life. =
