Attended a one-hour remote work event held in VirBELA Open Campus.
Topic was “How to work with your team remotely while improving collaboration and accountability.”
Speaker was Glenn Sanford, CEO of eXp, a company whose employees work online in a VirBELA Business Campus.
There were 165 attending as VirBELA avatars and 56 watching on the YouTube stream.
Speaker, voice, slides, and sound were good. The audience asked questions via text chat and a new “Slido” web app that Glenn was testing. The audience interacted with each other in text and occasional voice.
VirBELA provides basic options for residents to personalize their avatars viz. skin color, hair color, formal attire or casual attire, and glasses or not. Each avatar has a viewable Profile with room to add bio and links as desired.
You can see the recorded conference at How to Work with Your Team Remotely with Glenn Sanford: Tools, Technologies & Accountability.

What Are Mixed-Mode Live Conferences?
If you haven’t been in Second Life recently (and who hasn’t) you’d be amazed on checking in again at the explosion of themed regions. This one was built single-handed by (looks at notes) Marion Ker Logan (nee NellyMoody Resident) in honor of her mother and heritage.
I usually scoff at roleplay because reasons however the Story Teller had me back to the days of Baba Yaga on looks alone (see first pictures). I also scoffed in advance at being asked in advance to wear period attire which I did anyway because Virtual Pioneers has period attire available gratis at their HQ.
And THEN I saw Cychwynn’s and others’ period attire and was awed and envious. Virtual Pioneers runs a nice program and the region builds, owners, and guides are outstanding.
