Transform Symposium follow-up

As a follow-up to the previous post, here’s what it’s like to attend a symposium in Second Life at the Mayo Clinic Conference Center:

The audio and video are very clear and I can zoom in to focus on just the screen.  This morning’s session averages ten participants, including staff and volunteers narrating the main points in text chat for those with hearing impairments or who can’t turn on the audio stream.  There is minimal side discussion.

That’s my avatar in the grey sweater and jeans on the left, but real life me is busy in the kitchen and simultaneously enjoying Robert Fabricant’s talk at the symposium.

Update: Unable to attend in person or virtual reality? Main stage videos are being posted within 24 hours at mayo.edu/transform.
