SIM promotion at SFEU event

On Monday 17 March 2008, the UOP Sexual Health SIM was featured at an in-world event organised by the Scottish Further Education Unit (SFEU) in Second Life. You can watch the intro clip by Annamarie Kelly (SL:Edugirl Okelly), E-learning Advisor, SFEU, by clicking her image below. (It’s an excellent introduction, apart from her wrong pronunciation of Maged’s name — the ‘g’ should be pronounced like the ‘g’ in ‘get’ :-)
