SLOODLE Demo Course

Developed for the recent Scottish JISC-RSC Virtual Worlds event, there is a new SLOODLE demonstation course available online and in Second Life.

In an attempt to both demonstrate a range of the tools available, and how they might be used, the course uses a mock curriculum (Sound and Music) as a context for a self-paced tutorial exercise taught in Moodle and in Second Life.

The course starts here: http://www.sloodle.org/moodle/course/view.php?id=42

You will need to create an account at SLOODLE.org to access this - you can create an account on the login screen if need be.

The course works as a solo tutorial, but some activities will work best if undertaken as a small group. The complete tutorial should take from 90 minutes to 2 hours or so to complete - but you can drop in and out as required.
