> Subject: [SLED] Introduction
> My name is Lynn McClelland, and I am an English Instructor at
> Valley Community College in Phoenix, AZ. I was introduced to Second
> Life last week and am so excited about it. I teach Digital
> on our campus and attended the "Teachers Buzz" on Monday,
> February 5th.
> After I attended the "Buzz," I began to explore the virtual
> campus. The
> art museum really struck me.
> What would it be like to create an International Digital Storytelling
> Museum where visitors could explore digital stories just like they
> explore the artwork in the museum? Stories from all over the world
> could be placed on the virtual walls where visitors could press the
> images to play them. Digital storytelling classes could meet in this
> space to explore the art form, swap stories, share lives. I've
> contacted Alan Levine, aka CD Barkley, and he asked a couple of
> important questions:
> * What is special about showing videos in Second Life versus
> making them available on any web page?
> * What can you build around that that makes it worth
> going into SL??
> These are really important questions that go well beyond just the
> Digital Storytelling Museum. They really apply to everything
> we would
> want to do in this space. I am interested in hearing what everyone
> thinks about this idea. I have contacted fellow Digital Storytelling
> instructors at other MCCCD campuses, and they are interested in both
> exploring Second Life and its potential as well as the idea
> of a Digital
> Storytelling Museum.
> Well, that's about it. I look forward to working with you.
