5th SLanguages Annual Symposium

16-18 September 2011
Friday to Sunday

The 5th SLanguages Annual Symposium is a FREE annual conference which focuses on language learning in a virtual world(s) founded by Gavin Dudeney of The Consultants-E. Today it is organised by a team of volunteers. 

The featured theme of this year’s 3-day online conference is ‚Serious games‚ and ‚Situated Learning‚. 

It hosts around 50 guest speakers and is attended by approx. 500 participants/ avatars. It takes place in Second Life on EduNation and on AVALON Learning and includes tours to other virtual worlds. 

To attend the sessions in Second Life, you need to have an avatar, a 3D representation, which is free. To get an avatar you need to sign up at 

All of the program will be streamed in Adobe ConnectPro, which is a webconferencing software which allows us to screenshare our desktops, almost like a virtual window to a virtual world. You do not need to have an avatar to attend a session in Adobe and you can watch and listen to the keynotes, panel discussions, plenaries, presentations, workshops, tours to educational sims, demo language lessons, theatre plays, dance performances, variety shows and even the party all from the comfort of an Adobe ConnectPro seat (max 100).
