Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 8th February, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams when we will be visiting iLearn Lab, the immersive world of the iSchool at the University of Washington.

We’re given a guided tour by Ran Hinrichs, specialist in immersive information environments at the iSchool Faculty, University of Washington, who takes us on a guided tour to meet fellow faculty, teaching assistants, avalumni and students who take the course offered in Second Life as we learn about the history and content of the fascinating inworld course of which they are all a part.

We see the students at work and discover some of the projects they have created, and also learn about the theory of information that underlies the work they do.

One of the most fascinating aspects of this show is that it was produced in association with the iLearn Lab to an unusual degree!  After discussions, and reading earlier scripts, the students worked to create the script for this episode (with guidance from the Designing Worlds team); they not only appear in the show but also undertook production tasks including set design and costume.

Guests:
Ran Hinrichs, iSchool Faculty, University of Washington
Mano Barkovics, Student iSchool, University of Washington
Nicole Tilly, Student at iSchool, University of Washington
Shannon Garcia, TA, University of Washington
Bob Boiko, iSchool Faculty, University of Washington
