Meet the NPC Board Podcast by CVL
(Community Virtual Library).
CVL shares a podcast to introduce the Nonprofit Commons Board in Second Life- a collaborative network of virtual world communities.
What are the advantages of podcasts?
- Can be consumed while doing other things: driving, commuting, household chores.
- Can be stored and consumed offline.
- Useful way to keep up with developments of interest.
- No stage preparation: set, costumes, makeup, etc.
- Can access a market of busy people.
How does a virtual world help?
- Mainly through contacts and location:
- Virtual worlds have many groups focussing on topics of interest.
- Here CVL is allied with another group, NonProfit Commons
- The alliance gathers many people who are available to talk about related topics.
- Furthermore, a virtual world handles the job of bringing people together.
- It is as if all these people were in the same location,
What might a regular podcast be about?
- Libraries and education in virtual worlds?
- That's a natural, but not good for promotion.
- Too narrow--most librarians and educators have no interest in virtual worlds.
- How about "Libraries and educators in the online world."
- All librarians and educators have an interest in the online world, whether they like it or not.
- And we virtual worlders know a lot about online work beyond virtual worlds.
- Some services are better suited to the flat web.
- Social interaction benefits from virtual worlds.
