Nano Bugle

A window into applied science supported by INL

Second Life: a Community and Education tool

second_life-nanobugleDuring the 1st  INL workshop celebrated in Braga, INL young scientists had the opportunity to learn about possibilities and resources of Second Life.  This virtual world created by Linden labs is without hesitation one of the most powerful tools to organize meetings, make presentations and share information  in real time.

SecondLife is particular attractive for those companies and institutions with an international and global scale.  Among the most active corporations in this virtual world is IBM. At its facilities in Zurich,  a group of 20 experts in the field leaded by Dr Dirk Husemann study the current and future possibilities of these 3D applications.

Obviously, an International Research Organization, with global partnerships and aa real international community dispersed worldwide like the INL cannot miss the train of  SL.

If you want to practice your Spanish and learn a little bit more about the possibilities of  SL, please take a look at the information provided by the Spanish newspaper El Pais regarding the current tendencies of  SL.
