SECOND LIFE

Standard

It is used in universities such as Bahçe Şehir University, Yıldız Technique University, and Hacettepe Unversty. It is strictly forbidden and avoided in MEB schools. Teachers are afraid of the program. It is really looks like real life. One can get an avatar and download application to computer. Choosing avatar is the first step to start to Second life. Then one choose a user name or link profile with Facebook account. It was being used in Harvard University in 2006. It should be used in our schools. A real media document can be transferred into our Second life. If we want to apply it in our classes, we should create a classroom and we can give our lesson through presentation. As most applications of Second life, it was difficult for us to create our account correctly.

We can search people and create groups in our Second life and live another life there. We can create places and visit places around the world. I dowloaded it when I was at school but I learned it requires limitless internet connection. Therefore I couldn’t play the game in my room.

GETTING CLOSER TO FINAL POINT: WEEBLY

Standard

Today we talked about creating our own web site. We will create a web site and publish it at the end of the semester to get final point. We will publish our all tasks, our blog that we have done till the end of the semester in this site. To create our web site we will use Weebly. Today we talked about it. We can log in with our Gmail account. There are options to create such as site, blog. We chose site as we are asked to create site. When we select create option a lot of options appear in the left side of the site. The only thing that we are asked to do to drag symbols to the middle of the page and add whatever we want. We can add title, text, image, gallery, slide show, google map and contact form to our web site. These are basic options to add. There are structure options as well. We can separate the page and add column to our site. There are also media options on the left but they are not free. We should pay money to add media to our site. To make it free we can add Youtube link. Some sites have embed option and Weebly gives us chance to embed some kind of audio from those sites to our site. Audioboo.com is kind of a site to support us with listening part. We can contact our social accounts to our site.

To add our WordPress blog to our site we should use RSS Reader. When we drug RSS symbol to the site, add site URL to given blank and tap any part of the site our blog page is added to the site. I think it is much more interesting and and enjoyful from other sites that we talked about till now. I like this site at all. Weebly can be used by paying its credit for commercial aims.
