Victoria University enters Second Life

PhD student interacts with supervisors on an island in Second Life

Victoria University is supervising a PhD completely in Second Life.

Marcia Lyons, programme director of Digital Media Design at Victoria University's School of Design, and Mark Billinghurst, director of HIT Lab NZ, will co-supervise Peter Rive's PhD solely from the project's island in Second Life — Mediazone Island.

Rive will engage with the Second Life experiences of Victoria design students as part of his investigation into the role of open source and creative commons licensing in facilitating greater creative collaboration and knowledge sharing within virtual worlds.

Rive is utilising KAREN (Kiwi Advanced Research and Education Network) for the project.
