Student part-time work offered: controlling the VC's avatar
A nice quote in yesterday's Times Higher by John Coyne, VC at the University of Derby, in an article about transliteracy:
"While I was on the walkabout in Second Life, I bumped into another avatar (online persona) and it was one of my lecturers. He was surprised to discover his vice-chancellor there," Coyne explains.
"We engaged in a conversation, but I think he realised my avatar was being directed by a student colleague when he asked me a question. Apparently I responded by saying, 'Cool.'?
