CTU Second Life Classes for July 29-31, 2008

We will hold a CS 855 session in Second Life (SL) on Tuesday, July 29, 2008 at 6PM Mountain/7PM Central time, recapping the 2nd set of residency content. Attendance is optional.

We also have a 30-minute SL introduction on Thursday, July 31, 2008 at 6 PM Mountain/7PM Central time. MGM 845 also meets in Second Life for their strategic thinking activities. Depending on how many students arrive, we may use opposite sides of the island. After logging into Second Life, visit Acheron LV426 and click the Teleport Now button to teleport to class.

1st CS 855 class in Second Life: Sunday, July 27th's session was a blend of first time SL usage and socio-technical futuring concepts. We only skimmed the highlights of the history of futuring, various prediction techniques and Herman Kahn's predictions. We stopped far short of creative destruction.
