For lectures and presentations, use web-senders in virtual worldsA short sign path In CybaloungeClick image to enlargeWeb-sender: A sign citing a topic. On click it opens a web page in a new tab.This is the 3D equivalent of a web link.For a presentation, I use web-senders instead of bullet points.For adiuts, I put out the signs in advance, in the order I want to present them.I walk my avatar along the sign path and talk about the content behind the senders. The web-links can remain out indefinitely for review and use by others.Web senders to open web pagesSigns now out on that Cybalounge pathWeb-worlds, 3D virtual worlds running in a browser.
