Pic for December Update

The holiday break is a great time to dust off your avatar and visit some of the seasonal creations in Second Life. eXtension is offering a skating party with fireworks and a huge snow globe with a reading of The Night Before Christmas. You will find this temporary installation on the lake at the center of the Morrill regions.

The eXtension 3D virtual reality user community will meet Thursday, January 15 at 2:00 p.m. ET in Second Life. Paste this Second Life URL in your browser to navigate to the venue: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Morrill/131/5/24.

The agenda includes getting to know each other and setting goals and objectives for the group. We also will discuss eXtension’s upcoming demonstration of Oculus Rift at the USDA Agricultural Outlook Forum in February. New members are always welcome.

The Avatar Fitness Club will host a live class each Wednesday in January at 8:00 pm ET. The series “Healthy 2015 and Beyond: Fresh Perspectives on Nutrition and Exercise” will offer research-based information about nutrition and exercise along with role modeling with participants’ avatars. Presenters for the series are Leia Kedem, Nutrition and Wellness Educator from University of Illinois and Australian exercise physiologist Jason Jarred.
