If You are New to Second Life®

The conference will be held in Second Life®, which is a 3d user-created virtual environment.

If you are new to virtual worlds, we can get you started, and we encourage you to do this in advance of the conference.

On the main campus of the Rockcliffe University Consortium there is a gateway to enter Second Life which includes a welcome and orientation area. There you can quickly learn the basics to navigate in Second Life, and when the conference opens in March, the Gateway can be your starting point to go to the VWBPE conference.
