Second Life - the topic of a UWA 3-Minute Thesis Challenge Presentation
UWA Second Life founder, Jay Jay Jegathesan is also a PhD student, completing a part time PhD on the topic of community and collaboration through virtual worlds.
This video is taken from the semi-final round of the 2013 3-Minute Thesis competition where PhD students are asked to speak for 3 minutes on the PhD research using no technology or props aside from a single image.
Some other presentations as shown below by Francis Torres & Akhter Hosain, provide a flavour of some of the other presentations for the challenge.
