VWBPE 2011 "Virtual Worlds - Best Practices in Education"
Learning and working in the 3D web: HAW Hamburg and BÜRO X Media Lab present expert panels “Avatars in Class” in Second Life and on the new art and media campus in Hamburg
From March 17th to 19th, 2011, the fourth conference "Virtual Worlds - Best Practices in Education" ( will take place on the Internet platform Second Life. For three days, the focus is on the didactic potential of the avatar character, new applications at the desk and in the lecture hall and, last but not least, the economic advantages of Web 3D. The “Campus Hamburg in 3D” initiative of the BÜRO X Media Lab with the support of HAW Hamburg and ELBE STUDIOS makes a special contribution to this. At the panel “Avatars in Class - Campus Hamburg in 3D”, international experts take stock of four years of experience with the young media technology in projects on the Hamburg campus and discuss with guests from all over the world: Is communication on the web 3D a model of the future? Will the avatar become a catalyst for research, teaching and the world of work? for invitationsee Proposal / EN

Diploma lecture Micha Becker
HCU in 3d: Potential and Organization of Higher Education in the Synthetic World of Second Life
How can educational and research institutes, universities and teaching establishments use synthetic and virtual worlds for teaching and research? What role does the organization of these new digital spaces play in this? The diploma thesis "HCU in 3d" deals with the potential of 3D web technologies and attempts to design a logically derived room system for the real-physical HafenCity University, which can be dynamically and flexibly adapted to the focus and disciplines of the university in virtual space . The work with so-called "showcases" illuminates the current issues in technology development and the media landscape. Anyone who expects a simple reproduction of the university in digital space will be disappointed. Rather, it is about qualitatively occupied and networked content. The lecture for the thesis took place on October 29, 2010 at 6:00 pm live in Second Life® and at the same time physically in the premises of the HafenCity University Hamburg. More information can be found on the website or the flyer.

The work was carried out by Prof. -Ing. Michael Koch, Prof.-Ing. Alenka Poplin (both HCU Hamburg) in cooperation with Büro X Media Lab Hamburg (Hanno Tietgens).

Growing knowledge platform:
Two years "Campus Hamburg in 3D"
On November 27, 2007 the learning platform "Campus Hamburg in 3D" was opened in the virtual online world Second Life. Hanno Tietgens from BÜRO X Media Lab initiated the innovative project and implemented it with the support of the University of Hamburg, the HSBA, the Chamber of Commerce and the City of Hamburg, represented by the Hamburg @ work initiative. The campus is now starting its third year with new projects and new partners. => whole text as PDF => read on in HTML

The innovative university project of the BÜRO X Media Lab was supported by Hamburg @ work from the start. Now the initiative promises to continue its commitment in 2010. "We are pleased that such a future-oriented research project is being carried out in Hamburg," says Dörthe Julia Zurmöhle, Cluster Manager Hamburg @ work. => whole text as PDF => read on in HTML

Urban planning and architecture between two worlds:
HafenCity University conducts research on "Campus Hamburg in 3D"
Even before the planned laying of the foundation stone in Hafen City in spring 2010, HafenCity University Hamburg (HCU) is conducting a feasibility study to research the potential of digital web 3D platforms such as Second Life® for research and teaching as well as networking with other universities in virtual space. Among other things, it is to be evaluated whether in the context of this media development new collaborations with business and authorities can be initiated; Interested parties are welcome. => whole text as PDF => read on in HTML

DMI goes Second Life:

The branch of the Faculty of Design, Media and Information (DMI) of the HAW Hamburg in the 3D world Second Life has developed into an integral part of the teaching in the Department of Information since the first planning at the beginning of 2008. Since the beginning of the project, 15 to 20 students have been working on the further development of the virtual campus every semester under the title “DMI goes Second Life”.
