I held my first session of Second Life training at Rochester Regional Library Council tonight. Unfortunately, there is a limit on the number of new accounts you can create from an I.P. address at any given time, which forced me to quickly rethink my training plan.
The intention was to lead librarians through the process of setting up an account, creating an avatar, and then touring InfoIsland to show them the library work that is going on in Second Life.
We ended up having only five people able to create accounts (the others got error messages) and it turned into a demo for the rest of the group. It wasn’t bad, but I had to quickly rethink my plan and provide the same information without the benefit of the hands-on part of the program.
I’ll be holding another session next week, so will have people create their accounts ahead of time.
