Designing Educational Virtual Simulations
Where: OSCC Keynote 2
When: 3 years ago [12 Dec 2021 17:30 SLT]

In this presentation we will share our experience and lessons learned in designing virtual simulations for learners in high and low resource settings and explore the challenges and opportunities for co-creating virtual simulations with globally distributed teams.

Matt Cook, Rachel Umoren

Kevin Feenan, founder of Rockcliffe University Consortium, will be discussing challenges facing virtual environments over the coming years. Over the past 10 years, the competitive advantage of environments like Second Life and Open Simulator have not kept pace with technological innovation in general. This presentation will look at how we got here, what the immediate pressures are to innovate, and what we can do to change things.

Justice Literacy, Critiques, and Cultural Landscape
Where: OSCC Keynote 2
When: 3 years ago [12 Dec 2021 16:30 SLT]

Pursue broad questions that are fundamental to any efforts in research writing. Who is the author of the text? What period was the text about? How do we interpret the ideas? Hermenetutics has been useful as a way to interpret texts since Antiquity and called the ‘hermeneutic circle.’

The critique is imperative. Why do writers write? The answer is that characters, setting, mood, voice, and themes dynamically bring us to a state of relaxation and vision to understand truths. Literature is inspirational. My intention is to provide readers with tools to research the use of social justice as a reason to write and a methodology of applying the social justice paradigm for writing.

By Maryann DiEdwardo

We present the latest iteration of the RezMela Composer application. It has been shown to facilitate and speed up content production using various innovative techniques. Firstly, it provides access to a curated list of objects that can be assembled into useful 3d structures or powerful experiences. Secondly, the Composer offers a unique user interface which speeds up common but laborious and time consuming content creation tasks.

The Metaverse is coming, and OpenSim can show the way
Where: OSCC Keynote 2
When: 3 years ago [12 Dec 2021 14:00 SLT]

Venture capital investment in the metaverse has nearly doubled this year, Facebook has changed its name to Meta, and metaverse hype is everywhere. With improvements in bandwidth and better headset design, we’re on the cusp of a new era. Many of the projects being announced are closed or proprietary platforms. OpenSim’s decentralized, open-source, hyperconnected universe can point the way to how to do it right.

Hybrid Tech & Cross Dimensional Thinking
Where: OSCC Keynote 2
When: 3 years ago [12 Dec 2021 13:30 SLT]

“Hybrid Tech” means combining multiple tools to blend their strengths and mediate their weaknesses, relative to the use case at hand. “Cross Dimensional Thinking” means shifting perspectives, again and again, to master hybrid tech tool combinations. We will review FIVE USE CASES demonstrating how tools and perspectives can be blended interchangeably, relative to the use at hand.

GRAND OPENING OF OPENSIMULATOR ART
Where: OSCC Keynote 2
When: 3 years ago [12 Dec 2021 11:00 SLT]

WE ARE GOING TO AMERICA. That was the message the Pilgrims followed in 1620. AMERIKA is a village in Germany carrying the German / Dutch / Africaans / Turkey name for America so the slogan goes also this way: WE ARE GOING TO AMERIKA. Common between all languages is that we are leaving the borders of the old worlds behind. In May 2022 will be the award ceremony in the real Amerika Museum in Germany.

One year ago the call was made at OSCC20 for an immersive art competition, called AMERIKA ART. At OSCC21 the Grand Opening will happen. The Italian machinimist WizardOz Chrome created a machinima AMERIKA ART 2022 that will be presented, then everyone is invited to explore the art show and to give a vote that will result in the public award for one of the Long-Legged Maskitts, designed as a bronze statue by the Canadian artist Bryn Oh.

EXCALIBUR and the story continues….
Where: OSCC Keynote 2
When: 3 years ago [12 Dec 2021 10:30 SLT]

Groups of language learners, young and old, meet in immersive environments like OpenSim, Second Life or Minecraft and are asked to build a spaceship together. Or a village, or a power plant. They come from Italy, Finnland and Germany and need to communicate in English to achieve the lofty goals. Can building in OpenSim provide a venue to communicate in English in real-time? This potential will be explored in EXCALIBUR, a new EU funded project to come in 2022.

This presentation from Infinite Metaverse Alliance® (IMA) and Thales Group discusses research and development progress towards improving open source code for: SceneGate 1.x, Future SceneGate 2.0, DreamGate, IMABox, and EchoVoice projects. The work of IMA and Thales is in general directed toward broadening use of the Metaverse for Public, Education, Industry and Government sectors but the community as a whole benefits from open source.

Frank Rulof & Lisa Laxton

This session will delve into how virtual world use was impacted by expanded online instruction during the pandemic. The expectation (based on a 2020 survey of educators) was that faculty would expand their use of virtual world learning activities during the 2020-2021 academic year. Still, faculty plans to increase their use of virtual world learning simulations did not take into account student interest in virtual world learning simulations during the pandemic.

Student attrition in combination with the Zoom class webinar scheduling demands on students during the pandemic led to lower undergraduate student interest in virtual world learning activities. One bright spot in the realm of student interest in virtual world learning was observed in a class of graduate students studying how to teach online. As a related topic, this session will explore how to better position the OpenSimulator virtual world platform to play a larger role in the expected continued expansion in online instruction.

The Metaverse as a Distributed system: How we can react to Facebook’s conversion to Meta, and what their commitment combined with other technologies now available means for the future of the Metaverse. Businesses need different solutions than end users do. At the same time, we need those different systems to interact smoothly while addressing the privacy and security issues of today’s popular systems.

By Michael Christopher

As WordPress is one of the most popular CMS, I wanted to fill the gap and create an easy to setup front-end. While there were some attempts in this way, they were not ready to use solutions, more like pieces of puzzle to bring together. So started the development of W4OS (aka WordPress For OpenSimulator). The plugin is now tested and published, and allows showing the grid status, user grid registration and even the choice of initial avatar. Next goal is to add web grid profile, user region controls, some admin features and integrations like 2do HYPEvents calendar or web assets server.

Learning to Live on Mars
Where: OSCC Keynote 2
When: 3 years ago [11 Dec 2021 14:00 SLT]

Presentation of the International Spaceflight Museum’s Mars Base / Universal Habitat analog astronaut / colonist training facility. Will discuss the features of construction virtually, but will focus on how people interested in either learning more about colonizing Mars, or who want to begin training to colonize the Red Planet at some point in the future, to use the ISMs facility to begin that training process. How the facility portrays three phases of colony construction, how current technologies will be used to realize this construction using In Situ Resource Utilization of resources already present on Mars to drastically reduce the cost of both travel to Mars and to make living on Mars not only survivable, but to grow and thrive into a self sustaining colony capable of making mankind a multiplanetary species.
