Last weekend I had the privilege of participating in the first ever CMP Bootcamp hosted in Second Life (SL) and sponsored by MeCo. This was a great experience and certainly helped me prepare for my exam. This was second SL program I have attended and feel like this is an excellent complement to face-to-face learning.
I am amazed at how real the experience of Second Life is and how the learning experience is brought into my living room. It was much different "sitting" in the MeCo Mansion theater with my fellow "classmates" than just listening in on a webinar.
I was happy to see some press from the session. http://www.travelindustrywire.com/article30905.html
This is a great learning tool and I am looking forward to seeing it move into mainstream events. The volunteers that put this together are really doing a great service to the meetings industry. They deserve a lot of credit for their hardwork and for making such a positive impact on learning.
