VWBPE Final Week

The Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education Conference is ending another wonderful year of presentations, exhibits, and immersive experiences. This week is your final chance to see the regions and exhibits for the last time. Especially, don’t miss our epic The Queen’s Heroes in the Five Kingdoms, an in-world allegorical experience that is both storytelling and game. The regions go back to Linden Lab on May 6th, so come see before they disappear forever.

Watch for the conference proceedings in May in the Journal of Virtual Studies.

Save the date for VWBPE's 13th Annual Conference: Stellar, March 26-28, 2020.

This complete rebuild of the conference venue will feature true use of space where there is no up, only weightlessness. We will challenge presenters and exhibitors to go beyond two-dimensional thinking and conceptualize new solutions to common problems in education and digital literacies. Problems will be redefined both in terms of technology and innovation.

Coming in May

With VWBPE wrapping up, Rockcliffe is getting starting to make some additional updates over the coming month, starting with membership focus groups and an update to the Rockcliffe Library Wiki. Rockcliffe is now into its 14th year since its initial conception. Many things have changed over that time. For example, can you believe that the iPhone was released the year after Rockcliffe first came into existence?.

We would like to engage with our members as to what you would like to see and do and how Rockcliffe can help you achieve your goals. We are going to renew our vision of what a virtual space for learning is and how virtual spaces can be best used in multiple educational contexts. There are going to be stronger ties with our Journal of Virtual Studies and Library Network.

Most importantly, however, we want to ensure our continued support of your projects, be they research, praxis, and conceptually oriented. If you have an idea now, please email at to tell us how we can help you make it happen.



Director Openings: Rockcliffe has two Director openings on our Board of Directors. We are looking for one person with current connections and experience to higher education, and one person with current connections and experience to technology companies focused on virtual spaces. If you know of someone who might be a good fit, please refer them to our call out page for more information and to apply.
