1 The 3D Warehouse: Using Second Life to develop learners: an industry context Dr. Debbie Holley Anglia Ruskin University sl deb khaos

2 Small grant from the Chartered Institute for Logistics and Transport. The Institute: - have students across the world, studying at a distance and sometimes in isolation. - aim to offer their students access to as many real life opportunities as possible November 2010

3 but site visits with students are problematic. - Health and Safety regulations - Secrecy and security - outsourcing of warehousing November 2010

4 Solution – build an online virtual warehouse. Why Second Life? - freely accessible to visitors - can visit individually or in groups - media rich programmable environment allowing interactivity - students can access materials (.pdf files relevant to the subject – the CILT Knowledge Centre arranged copyright and permissions for us) November 2010

Clipper head office facilitated our subsequent work with the depot in Selby, East Yorkshire and arranged a visit. We also enrolled Chris OReilly, London Metropolitan University, a multimedia expert and film specialist to lead on filming and construction of accompanying interactive web-based resources. New Year 2011

18 Scrapped the earlier SL prototypes and based the new virtual warehouse on Clipper Selby to include: - even greater racking height - loading bays - conveyors - movement and noise - people Summer 2011

19 Chris OReilly developed the accompanying web site: The site is now live, loaded up on the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport website with all the project documentation, disseminated via the Institute Journal and their CMS database to University lecturers throughout the country. We are currently gathering data from site visitors for evaluation Autumn Summer 2012
