[15:54] AJ Brooks: great Wain, can you tell us about that?
[15:54] Sleepy Littlething: wo Wainbrave, that sounds interesting
[15:54] Wainbrave Bernal: and for the other, we're going to follow Sun Microsystems to see what they're doing to innovate / collaborate in SL and Project Wonderland
[15:54] Tuxedo Ninetails: about to run a seminar for my co-students
[15:55] Wainbrave Bernal: sure :)
[15:55] Sleepy Littlething: What stuff are you looking at Ruby? I have a friend that I could put you in touch with if you're interested - she's just completed a project to do with that area
[15:55] Wainbrave Bernal: Lane Community College here in Oregon has 10 computer science courses for Gaming and Simulation Development
[15:56] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: That would be great, Sleepy! I've had input from several SL profs. Can I email you offline?
[15:56] Sleepy Littlething: sure
[15:56] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: grea.
[15:56] Wainbrave Bernal: we're going to work on porting them to SL and use the API to support
[15:56] AJ Brooks: and do what exactly in SL? seems to be some chat lag also
[15:57] Wainbrave Bernal: allow students to take classes and learn how to make games
[15:57] AJ Brooks nods anyone here using sl for non-classroom activities
[15:57] Wainbrave Bernal: learn about the Gaming industry etc.
[15:57] ShaRae Karu: i am doing reasearch for a presentation on using 2nd life and other such social networking groups in distance education
[15:57] Wainbrave Bernal: sure!
[15:58] AJ Brooks: Sha, what is your research question?
[15:58] Wainbrave Bernal: For the Sun Microsystems grant we're doing a "virtual ethnography"
[15:58] Olivia Hotshot: i am working with nursing faculty who are asking their students to explore Health Info island for a scavenger hunt type activity. next they will be meeting as groups and developing activities.
[15:58] Wainbrave Bernal: and creating a typology of collaborative routines
[15:58] Kavon Zenovka: Actually - we've started to put on events closer to student life than a classroom setting
[15:59] Wainbrave Bernal: that's interesting Olivia
[15:59] Tuxedo Ninetails: I'm like ShaRae - preparing for a presentation for my masters class
[15:59] Kavon Zenovka: Talk like a Pirate Day & a SL Web Comics Con
[15:59] ShaRae Karu: it seems that there is so much potential... i am just amazedby what has already been done
[15:59] AJ Brooks: student life, hu - very intersting - our student development and campus life is very intersted and getting iveested in SL
[15:59] Kayako Mayako: As a possible non classroom activity, I am developing and taking some materials back to my e-teaching. For example, I surveyed three SL entrepreneurs about their in-world marketing activities using the same questions I used in RL learning materials. In turn, I developed slide shows of the findings and uploaded them into my Bb course site.
[15:59] evesapple75 Kuhn: I am planning to do a scavenger hunt type too with my science methods class at Genome island
[15:59] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: Aaaaaaarrrgh!!! To many conversation bubbles!!! I can'tkeeep track!!
[16:00] ShaRae Karu: has anyone used sloodle?
[16:00] evesapple75 Kuhn: Also, I am creating 30+ avatars for my class.
[16:00] Kavon Zenovka: We're tyring ot figure it out. Our next event will be on Nov. 1st and we're wondering exactly what to do.
[16:00] AJ Brooks: local chat that is the best way to follow the conversation - by having local chat open
[16:00] Olivia Hotshot: Sloodle is currently on my plate. Just starting though
[16:00] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: I do
[16:00] AJ Brooks: it takes up screen realestate, but it makes life so much easier
[16:00] Aerdna Beaumont: I use Sloodle
[16:00] AJ Brooks: oh - ok :-)
[16:00] JoannaTrail Blazer: The Masters of Digital Media students participate in rapid prototyping for real world projects in SL, as well as Building Virtual Worlds required class, making machinimas and environments, mixed reality campus events....etc... and also industry funded projects, currently we are doing a series of machinimas for BC government.
[16:00] ShaRae Karu: how does it work?
[16:00] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: sorry--i have SERIOUS adhd...
[16:01] ShaRae Karu: sloodle, that is
[16:01] AJ Brooks: lol - but you are right, now that we have a few threads, perhaps we should focus on one so lets look at SLoodle
[16:01] Olivia Hotshot: ShaRae - are you using the Moodle LMS?
[16:01] AJ Brooks: how many peopel ahve ever heard of SLoodle - say YES
[16:01] ShaRae Karu: yes
[16:01] Olivia Hotshot: Yes
[16:01] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: yes
[16:01] Aerdna Beaumont: Works very good, i was in the sloodle developers meeting before coming here
[16:01] Wainbrave Bernal: yes
[16:01] JoannaTrail Blazer: YES, but we have opted to not use it with our moodle
[16:01] Kayako Mayako: yes
[16:01] Olivia Hotshot: me too Aerdna :)
[16:01] Sleepy Littlething: yes interesting - why Joanna?
[16:02] Wainbrave Bernal: do people find Sloodle useful? ... please describe
[16:02] AJ Brooks: wowo - ok - so at least 50% of you have, and the other 50% have not
[16:02] Aerdna Beaumont: yes
[16:02] JeanClaude Vollmar: Yes
[16:02] Tuxedo Ninetails: Can someone give a brief description of what Sloodle is and does?
[16:02] AJ Brooks: can lol - you took the words right out of my mouth can one of you give us a readers digest version of what sloodle is someone who is teaching in RL and SL with it maybe and can tell of first hand experiences buehler?
[16:03] ShaRae Karu: anyone?
[16:03] Tuxedo Ninetails: Aerdna?
[16:03] AJ Brooks knocks on microhone
[16:03] AJ Brooks: is this thing on?
[16:03] Olivia Hotshot: basically it is SL integrated into a Learning management system
[16:03] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: :)
[16:03] Sleepy Littlething: I'm really sorry, I have to run, I have to be up early tomorrow (now today) for a meeting - will this chat be listed somewhere?
[16:04] ShaRae Karu: is it restricted?
[16:04] AJ Brooks: yes - eventually posted in the HUGE building next to this
[16:04] Aerdna Beaumont: no its free
[16:04] Sleepy Littlething: ok ty
[16:04] Olivia Hotshot: Moodle is a system used enterprise wide
[16:04] JeanClaude Vollmar: I'm wondering too... Can it be use with anything besides Moodle?
[16:04] Tuxedo Ninetails: What form is the integration?
[16:04] JoannaTrail Blazer: @ Sleepy - some of our instructors use moodle, the instructor I am working with for Building Virtual Worlds (ex Linden Jeffrey Ventrella) hates the user interface and built an internal course webpage instead.
[16:04] Wainbrave Bernal: there are a number of tools under development for SLoodle that look promising
[16:04] Olivia Hotshot: It looks like Angel is the next integration
[16:04] Tuxedo Ninetails: Is it just a link within Moodle, or a stronger integration?
[16:04] Wainbrave Bernal: Angel?
[16:05] Aerdna Beaumont: its a mashup
[16:05] Olivia Hotshot: Angel is another LMS
[16:05] AJ Brooks: Angle has its own island here
[16:05] JoannaTrail Blazer: It's not because SLoodle "sucks", we just went another route. Moodle can be modified to suit user's needs for the most part.
[16:05] AJ Brooks: moodle is open source and free and can even be run on a local machine
[16:05] Sleepy Littlething: interesting, as an end-user I wasn't keen, but as an educator in SL I really like the idea
[16:05] Wainbrave Bernal: Blackboard had a $30,000 grant for doing "something" two years ago at SLCC -- don't know what happened to is
[16:05] Sleepy Littlething: I found it a bit clonky
[16:05] Olivia Hotshot: it requires a lot of inhouse mod - but it is well worth it
[16:05] JoannaTrail Blazer: So what I meant to express is I don't have first hand experience testing Sloodle, while I do with Moodle on it's own. So I am interested in folks experiences here.
[16:05] AJ Brooks: although the LMS would be off line when the machien was offline what parts are common between SL and Moodle - what is the intergration piece (s)
[16:06] Wainbrave Bernal: chat logging :)
[16:06] Aerdna Beaumont: choice
[16:06] AJ Brooks: and entering into a discussion thread?
[16:06] Olivia Hotshot: Joanna - one of the coolest integrations i have seen was the Quiz chair - where a student answered questions while seated in it, and the answers were recorded into the LMS
[16:06] Aerdna Beaumont: track system
[16:06] AJ Brooks: choice?
[16:06] Aerdna Beaumont: sloodle choice
[16:06] ShaRae Karu: this might be a silly qyestion, but can the students access SL as they normally would if we rant it through sloodle
[16:06] Wainbrave Bernal: as you answer correctly, your quiz chair moves higher up
[16:07] Sleepy Littlething: If I understand what you mean - yes
[16:07] Aerdna Beaumont: studend can use from moodle or choice from sloodle
[16:07] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: Love the "rant" typo. How I feel right now
[16:07] Olivia Hotshot: literally "go to the head of the class" =)
[16:07] Tuxedo Ninetails: Ahhh! Quiz chair sounds really interesting!
[16:07] AJ Brooks: wow - fizzy lifting chair
[16:07] Wainbrave Bernal: that's cool
[16:07] Aerdna Beaumont: students love it
[16:07] Olivia Hotshot: also there are interactive surveys that can be recorded into the LMS
[16:07] Sleepy Littlething: I like the fact taht it allows students to interact if they don't have access (either institutional or personal home hardware) to participate in classes in SL
[16:07] Wainbrave Bernal: there's authentication working into it too
[16:07] AJ Brooks: ldap
[16:07] JoannaTrail Blazer: @ Olivia, that sounds neat! Well, we are developing a Masters of Digital Media program for execs (a version of our existing program you can take remotely) so I will be considering the options for SL integration for that.
[16:08] Wainbrave Bernal: right
[16:08] AJ Brooks: how does the LDAP work with SL
[16:08] Olivia Hotshot nods at Joanna's comment - so much is going on! :)
[16:08] Wainbrave Bernal: and a blogging tool - a blog HUD
[16:08] JoannaTrail Blazer: Such an exciting time :)
[16:08] Sleepy Littlething: sorry gotta go guys - hope to stay longer next time
[16:08] JeanClaude Vollmar: So have any of you using Angel heard any status of their integration into SL?
[16:08] Wainbrave Bernal: so you can post a blog post to Moodle
[16:08] JoannaTrail Blazer: bye Sleepy :)
[16:09] AJ Brooks: bye sleepy - see you next time
[16:09] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: Exciting is right! I wish everyone could see the potential...
[16:09] Olivia Hotshot: JeanClaude - the Sloodler group is currently discussing just that
[16:09] AJ Brooks: straw poll - if you;'ve ever heard fo Angle LMS - say YES
[16:09] JoannaTrail Blazer: In time Ruby :)
[16:09] AJ Brooks: YES
[16:09] Aerdna Beaumont: yes
[16:09] ShaRae Karu: yes
[16:09] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: yes--but don't know squat about it
[16:09] JeanClaude Vollmar: Yes
[16:09] Wainbrave Bernal: yes
[16:09] Tuxedo Ninetails: Yes - heard but no nore.
[16:09] Olivia Hotshot: yes
[16:09] Eneias Pessoa: No
[16:09] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: :)
[16:09] Kavon Zenovka: yes
[16:09] JeanClaude Vollmar: So sloodle will be the interface to Angel then Olivia?
[16:09] Kavon Zenovka: heard but never seen
[16:10] Wainbrave Bernal: Intellagirl built Angel's island in SL
[16:10] Olivia Hotshot: apparently so JeanClaude
[16:10] AJ Brooks: ok - so about 1/3 of you
[16:10] Wainbrave Bernal: partly anyways
[16:10] Zotarah Shepherd: No
[16:10] Aerdna Beaumont: Its a concept proof
[16:10] JoannaTrail Blazer: Intellagirl rocks.
[16:10] Olivia Hotshot: wait i mean SL into angel :)
[16:10] Wainbrave Bernal: yes Intellagirl ROCKS! (go Velks)
[16:10] JoannaTrail Blazer: *Wewtwewt *
[16:10] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: That's a cool factoid--Intellagirl is one of my heroes. I'll have to learn more about Angel...
[16:10] AJ Brooks: uh - yeah - she does - but how did that come up? AHHHH I see it well - she built SOME of the island
[16:11] JoannaTrail Blazer: someone mentioned she built the sim
[16:11] AJ Brooks: and she DOES totally rock
[16:11] JoannaTrail Blazer: ohk :)
[16:11] Wainbrave Bernal: (placing the guitar next the amp for maximum feedback)
[16:11] Zotarah Shepherd: Except on the teen grid
[16:11] AJ Brooks: ?
[16:11] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: Not a Hendrix fan?
[16:12] Aerdna Beaumont: they are going to try Sloodle in teen grid soon
[16:12] AJ Brooks: ah - got it
[16:12] Kayako Mayako: What is the authentication angle? (I was AFK and am just catching up on the chat.) I am interested in the authentication after Congress added this item to the Higher Education Reauthorization Act.
[16:12] AJ Brooks: asn't making the connection
[16:12] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: Authentication angle of what? SL? Angel?
[16:12] Olivia Hotshot: Kayako - the las meeting i attended on authentification was that mcuh if it is in limbo at the time
[16:12] AJ Brooks: is Angel developing I've not heard much from them recently
[16:13] Olivia Hotshot: pardon the poor typing
[16:13] Wainbrave Bernal: Sloodle allows one to authenticate between a registered account on Moodle and a SL avatar
[16:13] AJ Brooks: s'ok - we all speak typo fluently
[16:13] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: Ah! OK
[16:14] Wainbrave Bernal: but that's different from authentication of which Congress bespeaks methinks
[16:14] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: well, that was my question...
[16:14] Olivia Hotshot: Wain - but now there is an authentication feature that is being added to all distance classes - but a lot of it has yet to be determined - just jargonish law at this point
[16:14] AJ Brooks: speaking so sloodle
[16:14] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: bespeaks? methinks? E;ozabethan Emglanc?
[16:15] AJ Brooks: ladies and gentlemen - mr buddy sprocket!
[16:15] Kayako Mayako: To Olivia, I agree that we -- in distance ed -- are not likely to be required to do much else other than use password protected course management systems. However, just as soon as more technology is available...
[16:15] Wainbrave Bernal: yes, Olivia - I have heard the rumblings...
[16:15] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: In English: Elizabethan English
[16:15] Olivia Hotshot: they want to make sure the student who SAYS they are on the distance end is the student who is registered for the class & receiving credit
[16:15] Olivia Hotshot: sorry Wain
[16:15] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: oooooh! Hi, Buddy!
[16:15] Buddy Sprocket: hi there my ears were burning
[16:15] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: Great Timing!!!
[16:15] AJ Brooks: Hey Buddy

[16:15] Buddy Sprocket: :-)
[16:15] AJ Brooks: yes - they were
[16:15] Aerdna Beaumont: Hi buddy!
[16:15] Wainbrave Bernal: now for questions about Sloodle!!!!
[16:15] Olivia Hotshot: hi buddy
[16:15] AJ Brooks: folks, Buddy is one of the Sloodly demi-gods
[16:16] Wainbrave Bernal: HERE is THE Sloodle dudes
[16:16] JeanClaude Vollmar: Cool!
[16:16] AJ Brooks: buddy - make sure you clikc the center chat logger
[16:16] JeanClaude Vollmar: So what about integrating in Angel then?
[16:16] Wainbrave Bernal: and it's too bad you can't hear him speak with his real voice, cuz he's got a voice like butter
[16:16] AJ Brooks: lol
[16:16] Kayako Mayako: Does anyone have the LM for the Angel island?
[16:16] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: hmmmmm....which means?
[16:17] AJ Brooks: first off - what is the sloodle web site url?
[16:17] Buddy Sprocket: www.sloodle.org
[16:17] Kayako Mayako: Thank you Jean!
[16:17] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: I'm referring to the buttery voice. Sounds like???
[16:17] JeanClaude Vollmar: Sure
[16:17] AJ Brooks: check the map for ANGEL Learning Island Isle - sorry
[16:17] Wainbrave Bernal: A Scottish Brogue
[16:17] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: oooooooh....
[16:18] AJ Brooks: If its not Scottish.....
[16:18] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: What's your heritage, Buddy
[16:18] AJ Brooks: he's from doodleland PEDRO!
[16:18] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: :)
[16:18] Buddy Sprocket: my heritage? well, i was born in scotland but my great grandfather came from new york (True fact) so I'm part american
[16:18] Buddy Sprocket: ;-)
[16:19] Wainbrave Bernal: OMG! :)
[16:19] AJ Brooks: lol
[16:19] Pedro McMillan: eeep, still rezzing... I see ghostly floating nametags...
[16:19] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: Ah--NY is a country to itself. I know--I'm a New Yourker
[16:19] JeanClaude Vollmar: Wow, snoodlers galor
[16:19] AJ Brooks: and to think we almost voted you off the island
[16:19] Christopher Flow: Heinz 57.
[16:19] AJ Brooks: so - sloodle demi-gods we were talking about sloodle and angle
[16:19] Tuxedo Ninetails grins
[16:20] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: aj--did you, uhm, contact these guys???
[16:20] AJ Brooks: about 1/2 the folks here had never heard of sloodle no lol
[16:20] Buddy Sprocket: yeah, aerdna gave me heads up, so alghough ive been trying to log off for 30 mins, I thought i would drop in
[16:20] JeanClaude Vollmar: Yeah, some of us use Angel for an LMS
[16:20] Wainbrave Bernal: crud cake! I gotta log off and pick up me kids!
[16:20] AJ Brooks: :-(
[16:20] Buddy Sprocket: interestingly, there is a project just now to put an open-source SL 'front end' on an angel LMS
[16:20] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: Hey, Belarius__are you from Sloodle??
[16:21] AJ Brooks: later wain
[16:21] Zotarah Shepherd: Good to see you here Wain
[16:21] Buddy Sprocket: but very early days on that, that is just starting
[16:21] Wainbrave Bernal: Good to see you all - Buddy, AJ, etc... we'll talk velks soon!
[16:21] JeanClaude Vollmar: Good news Buddy!
[16:21] Wainbrave Bernal: see you everyone! waves!
[16:21] Christopher Flow: bye
[16:21] Buddy Sprocket: im not involved in that, by wain
[16:21] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: Bye!
[16:21] Buddy Sprocket: but was hearing about it
[16:22] JeanClaude Vollmar: Bye Wain
[16:22] Buddy Sprocket: moodle is not so popular in north america, but very big in south america, europe, new zealand, asia...
[16:22] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: Interesting--why is that?
[16:22] Christopher Flow: Blackboard/WebCT
[16:22] Tuxedo Ninetails: Bye Wain! Thanks for your input.
[16:23] Buddy Sprocket: there is sometimes a bit of a domino effect....
[16:23] Olivia Hotshot: Moodle is becoming more popular in cali with the budget cuts and BB's fees so big
[16:23] ShaRae Karu: they're so expensive for us little peeps, tho
[16:23] JeanClaude Vollmar: Angel's been talking about an interface for probably a year or more now, but haven't seen any fruits of their labor
[16:23] Buddy Sprocket: south america because some countries there mandate open source for govt contracts
[16:23] Christopher Flow: That's a good policy. :-)
[16:23] AJ Brooks: Brasil is liek that
[16:24] Christopher Flow: In Korea, where I am, it's slowly catching on. But, like all new things here, in a single day, the whole country could be using it: poof!
[16:24] Buddy Sprocket: just now on sloodle project, we have some limited free Moodle/Sloodle hosting for people who will be using sloodle with a class, and ninehubs.com offer free hosting also (with adverts!)
[16:24] AJ Brooks: lol
[16:24] Aerdna Beaumont: But US has more register courses than Brazil in moodle org
[16:25] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: Ah...PAID courses? There's our capitalism at work...
[16:25] Pedro McMillan: Ninehub.com has had some SLOODLE problems in the past, but I *think* it's all working now
[16:25] Christopher Flow: Many of the reg'd courses don't work, though. :-) Correct Pedro. I can attest to that. All good now. NInehub is also FAST to respond to tech problems.
[16:26] ShaRae Karu: gotta run; catch you all later - thanks for all the great info.
[16:26] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: Chris--Are you implying...?
[16:26] Christopher Flow: ; -
[16:26] AJ Brooks: bye sha - thanks for cmooing
[16:26] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: Bye!
[16:26] AJ Brooks: come back again - this time next week - 2:30pm after that
[16:27] ShaRae Karu: will do
[16:27] JeanClaude Vollmar: Bye Sha
[16:27] AJ Brooks: any other news on the SLoodle front, Buddy?
[16:28] Buddy Sprocket: well... we recently released a case study based on a class that chris flow here taught
[16:28] Christopher Flow: WooT!
[16:28] Buddy Sprocket: that was given out at SLEDcc, so some of you may have seen it
[16:28] Zotarah Shepherd: Is the study posted somewhere?
[16:28] Buddy Sprocket: let me get the link
[16:28] Zotarah Shepherd: Thanks
[16:29] Buddy Sprocket: http://www.sloodle.org/moodle/mod/resource/view.php?id=931
[16:29] AJ Brooks: argh - when I had Wain here I should have asked about the preceedings
[16:29] Buddy Sprocket: It shows SL and Sloodle as one part of a class - the real glue was Moodle itself,
[16:29] Christopher Flow: This term, we have 3 such exchanges going -- 150 students from 4 countries. :-)
[16:30] AJ Brooks: wow
[16:30] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: Woah!!!!
[16:30] Buddy Sprocket: we are starting on trying to do one page 'cheat sheets' - got one drafted but not out yet
[16:30] AJ Brooks: excellent
[16:30] Christopher Flow: The tools have become so easy to use, it's simple to set up.
[16:30] Buddy Sprocket: but if you sign up to the forums at sloodle.org, you'd be able to see the draft in the general forums
[16:30] AJ Brooks: perhaps we can have you back as guests to talk just about sloodle one week
[16:31] Buddy Sprocket: would be glad
[16:31] AJ Brooks: although i know it coincides with your meeting - perhaps we can combine the two
[16:31] Christopher Flow: I'd be happy to be of service. :-)
[16:31] Buddy Sprocket: that would be nice...
[16:31] Kayako Mayako: I second AJ's request to have you back so we can learn more.
[16:31] Christopher Flow: If I can make it.
[16:31] Buddy Sprocket: that means I can go to bed!
[16:31] AJ Brooks: Buddy - I'll reach out to you later about firming this up
[16:31] Buddy Sprocket: its half past midnight here lol
[16:31] AJ Brooks: go to bed!
[16:31] Christopher Flow: 7 am in LOL Korea.
[16:31] Kavon Zenovka: Sorry got 2 go.
[16:32] AJ Brooks: well - good night buddy and good morning chris
[16:32] Buddy Sprocket: catch you later, but genuinely nice to finally make it here!
[16:32] Christopher Flow: Sorry, 8 am-ish now.

[16:32] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: Thanks! Bye...
[16:32] Aerdna Beaumont: good night buddy
[16:32] AJ Brooks: be sure to join us next week at the same time - our last meeting at 3:30slt
[16:32] Zotarah Shepherd: Good reason to have the time earlier AJ Glad you are changing it
[16:32] AJ Brooks: and next week will be our EDUCAUSE SLER Meet up
[16:32] Kayako Mayako: I have to go too (to run a carpool to a Girl Scout meeting). Thanks AJ and everyone. See you next time.
[16:32] RubyTuesday Ballyhoo: Maybe he'd prefer the following week--but perhaps not Chris
[16:32] Christopher Flow: If anyone would like to visit our exchanges in SL to see the action, please let me know. All are welcome.
[16:32] Olivia Hotshot: Thanks everyone
