solipCISM gets makeover

In preparation for the next academic year, beginning in four weeks from now, solipCISM has had an extensive makeover this summer, with much of the existing content redesigned, rebuilt, or re-textured, as well as much new content added.  The Welcome Zone has been largely redesigned and rebuilt, now with well-stocked freebie shops as well as freebie boxes lining the new quaysides.  The Library has been partly rebuilt and fully re-textured.  A new Centre for Teaching and Learning in Virtual Environments will deliver educational resources and tutorials to both staff and students; and perhaps of especial value, adjacent to the Centre’s main building, is a complete guide to running an OpenSimulator server and managing a region either standalone, or in grid mode, or connected to an off-SL grid.  A new level at 4080 metres has a theatre, a bookshop of key readings for taught modules (full-text books or links to Amazon), shops from which students may sell their creative work, an exhibition centre, and a Virtual Life Research Centre.
