Interactive exhibit design in Second Life

January 19, 2008

“What makes a great interactive exhibit?  How can you turn your wild ideas into experiences that excite and inspire visitors?  How can you create virtual exhibits that translate well to the real world?

These galleries explore these questions and provide some starting points for you as you design your own exhibits:”

 Latest visitors’ stats
Our blog is now the first hit in Google for the keywords “sexual health” + “Second Life”. Our in-world public Group launched on 10 August 2007 now has 84 Members as at 12 January 2008, up from 80 Members on 14 December 2007, 66 Members on 13 November 2007 and 25 Members on 12 August 2007 — figures include three admin members (the core project team). Also as at 12 January 2008 (end of the day, SLT time), our SIM received more than 1890 unique visitors/avatars (all time) since our initial launch on 12 July 2007, up from about 1650 unique visitors on 13 December 2007 (12 Jul 07 – 13 Dec 07), 1300 unique visitors on 13 November 2007 (12 Jul 07 – 13 Nov 07), 940 unique visitors on 13 October 2007 (12 Jul 07 – 13 Oct 07), 590 unique visitors on 13 September 2007 (12 Jul 07 – 13 Sep 07), and 210 unique visitors on 11 August 2007 (12 Jul 07 – 11 Aug 07) — the corresponding figures with repeat visitors would be much higher. The highest peak concurrency figure was 14 visitors on both 12 September 2007 and 13 December 2007 (all figures not counting owner). The total visitor-minutes spent on our land during the past 154 days (12 Aug 07 – 12 Jan 08, owner minutes excluded) was >15900 minutes — that is >265 hours, of them >50 hours were spent in the past 30 days (14 Dec 07 – 12 Jan 08), and >95 hours between 14 November 2007 and 13 December 2007 (including >20 hours on 13 Dec 07 alone)! More than 140 avatars have so far taken our in-world survey as at 12 January 2008. (P.S. We had a nice Christmas tree and snow emitter in our SIM over the Christmas and New Year period.)
