If you haven’t been to BGSU Interaction lately, you’ve been missing some of the most fun and exciting attractions on the BGSU Virtual Campus! Visit now:

First, the BGSU Virtual Campus is sponsoring a contest to build new racecars for our racetrack. Anyone in Second Life is eligible to apply. The best entries will be featured on the Interaction island racetrack.

The Virtual Campus Planetarium was one of the first interactive exhibits on our original island. We are currently looking for faculty, staff, students or Second Life residents who would be willing to add additional content to the Planetarium. This could include useful links to web content, a recorded mp3 or video walkthru, or anything else related to our solar system.

Our Researcher in Residence, Dr. Lance R. Williams has been working on the BGSU Virtual Campus for over a year. His research deals with using the Scheme Programming Language in Second Life and using SL scripts for distributed computing. Dr. Williams will be visiting the RL (real life) campus on April 16th & 17th. He will have two lectures about his work in Second Life, one for a general audience and also a Computer Science Colloquim for more specific in-depth information.
