A great press release discussing Texas State Technical College’s certificate in digital media. Amazing that it is the first but hats off to them for doing this.
The use of a virtual world, like Second Life, is incredibly appropriate for this educational track. It will be interesting to follow it’s implementation and hopefully find their island. The press release does include a video and snapshot giving a glimpse of their efforts.
Creating a mostly inworld educational offering such as this must have been incredible. It’s one thing to offer a few classes on inworld activities, but quite another to teach a programme that encompasses all digital media.
