Plymouth’s Twofour continues to go from strength to strength after a coupla high-profile commissions.
First up, they’ve helped the University of Leicester create a web-based ‘educational island’ as part of Second Life.
The uni is hoping to provide real online learning in the ‘virtual university’ within five years with virtual lectures becoming the norm for many students.
Some hope – the students will probably be hanging out in a virtual pub instead, playing virtual pool and drinking virtual cider.
Twofour has also created a new MySpace-style site for CBBC, which will allow brats to design a ‘virtual den’ with different furniture, wallpaper, flooring, posters and things.
Kids will be able to build their own profiles, add a limited personal address book of chums and incorporate a CBBC avatar (but of course!).
The days of ‘networking’ in a park, running round with coats for capes seem a very long time ago. Heck, the way Twofour is going, soon even conversations between mother and child will be conducted in cyberspace.
