Teaching at an epic castle

Image
Epic Castle (aka Alfea Castle, aka Epic Citadel) is a free OAR file that can be loaded into Sim-on-a-Stick. Educators have been using this sim to teach ESL at edMondo grid, but it could also be used to teach several other subjects, from history to spatial planning, literature, or even creative writing.


The Epic Castle OAR file is currently available for download at 'Teaching with SoaS' FB group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/teachingwithSoaS/

How to install SoaS on a USB drive

Image
As you can see, installing SoaS on a pen drive is not hard at all - just remember that, depending on the quality of the USB drive you're using, running SoaS on a thumb drive can make it quite slow.

About the viewer: if you're planning to upload a lot of mesh content, instead of old Imprudence, you might want to use her younger 'sister', Kokua. Make sure you've downloaded KokuaOS (the OpenSim version of this viewer) Setup file to the USB drive before running it.
