For the second time in as many days, I have participated in online meetings in the virtual world of Second Life. This evening, I met a colleague from the comfort of my home office. She, on the other hand, was speaking in front of a class of students back at the university.

During both meetings, all the participants complained that they were spending too much time typing and had trouble following the flow of conversation since their eyes had to constantly go back down to the keyboard and their fingers were busy dealing with finding objects in the inventory, exploring the control buttons, and directing the movements of our avatars. Our solution: Skype.

The next meeting we hold will be facilitated though the use of Skype, an internet communication tool. Once Second Life is up and running, we will then log on to a Skype conversation with the other participants and spent our time exploring the site with greater flexibility.
