HG Welcome Center HGProjects.  
Possible content and presentation
A presentation at Expo 2 of OSCC15 by Thirza Ember provides content that should be considered for inclusion in the HG welcome center.  Here, examples of the content and means of presentation are shown in pictures.  The complete content can probably be obtained from Thirza.

Sunbeam Magic recommended this Expo: 

I think we should take our cue from the OSCC HG Expo 2 that is all about HG :) I like the look and feel of this Expo and think it would do well as a Welcome center for newbies and us veterans :) 
As part of the HG Welcome Center project, I am collecting and posting examples of possible content and of possible presentation methods.   I will not take a position about anything other than that the items I am presenting are worth considering.  As I routinely told my brainstorming groups, The way to have a good idea is to have lots of ideas to choose 

As a mental model, I think we may come up with three products: 

  • A single, localized sim in some HG location.
  • A model HGWC with readily available, free-to-copy, units for a DIY HGWC
  • A web-based HGWC that people can read before they come into HG 
  • Keep in mind that what we are really producing is experiences. 
  • Don't think of our products as digital things.  We are producing:
  • Experiences that develop specified skills in our learners.  
  • (More after the break)
