The first show of the new season (Season 25) of Designing Worlds – where we look back to the Relay for Life of Second Life Weekend held in July – is now on the web!

The Relay for Life weekend is the pinnacle of the annual campaigning for Relay for Life of Second Life, with the track running around amazing builds created by the organising committee, and past the stunning campsites created by the individual teams. We share builds that were beautiful and builds that are informative … and builds that are a mixture of both!

And we talk to just a few of the many, many people who were involved. It all makes for an amazing start to our new season!

The final show of the current season (Season 24) of Designing Worlds – where we visit the special Second Life educational establishment that teaches you all about building (and much more) in Second Life – Builders Brewery – is now on the web!

We visit the Brewery with the owner Sensuous (Sen) Maximus who explains something of the history of the Brewery, and also the different elements on offer, including stores stocking materials for building, a sandbox and a terraforming area. We visit classrooms and Saffia actually attempts a class and discovers how to build a special summery creation!

We also talk to Yen Verhoeven who is carrying out research for her Ph.D thesis on Virtual Learning: An Application of Constructivist Grounded Theory to Explore Emergent Learning in Second Life through studying what forms of learning emerge through the practices found at the Builder’s Brewery as part of her work towards developing a virtual theory of learning.

Sadly, we only have time to show a small sample of what was on display at SL14B, but fortunately Wildstar Beaumont was on hand with his trusty camera to show much, more more!

In addition, you can see the talks Saffia did with Lindens from the Lab at SL14B on the Second Life YouTube channel.
