Abstract In Fall 2011, a Virtual and Cloud Computing Architecture class set in Second Life developed presentation devices that illustrate the pathways for understanding what makes virtual worlds and cloud computing spaces compelling. In a collaboration with two professors, the students will demonstrate these Cloud Topoanalysis Montage exhibits and share their learning insights during this unique presentation that uses a 3D rezzer to exhibit the content. Strategies and tips for hosting similar educational projects are highlights of this session.
