About the Course:

The purpose of this class is to investigate how Second Life (an online role playing game) can be used to turn a physical environment into a virtual one. This course will explore the real vs. virtual world concept in the context of Catal Hoyuk, a Neolithic site in Turkey. This course incorporates on going archaeological research in Second Life and addresses key issues in archaeology such as the archaeologist’s audience and archaeology/media relations.

This course also serves as a basic primer into the virtual world of Second Life. Through this course, students will learn how to interact with real people in a virtual environment. This course also addresses how virtual experiences are applicable to the real world (i.e. relationships, business). By the end of this course, students will have established themselves as fully functioning citizens of Second Life and will know how to control basic aspects of their environment. 

How to Enroll:

This DeCal will be held in the Multimedia Authoring Center for Teaching in Anthropology (MACTiA) located at 2224 Piedmont (one of the little houses across from the football stadium).

This classroom only had 8 mac computures avaliable for student use, so please bring a laptop if you have one (for the first and subsequent days of class).

Based on the size of the room and other factors (like number of electrical outlets), the class size will be limited to 15 people. However, the number of spots may be increased to 20 if more room is availiable.
