This advice about texture sizes is relevant to many virtual worlds. Mona discusses the download size of a 1024x1024 24-bit color-depth texture versus the download size of smaller texture sizes and how that impacts the visitor's viewer. In May 2013, Ciaran Laval blogged about this topic also: http://sl.governormarley.com/?p=3128#more-3128

Educators aren't the "sage on the stage" anymore because information is readily accessible. Now teaching is about helping students make sense of all the info. 

Marie Arndt's comment, July 19, 2013 5:43 AM
The role of the teacher has changed in many ways, not just regarding teaching, but the importance they have in students' lives. Technology, as Susan rightly points out, quality of teaching cannot be disguised by technology. We must help students to be selective in the barrage of 'information' they are exposed to, which is not always that but biased tripe or propaganda.
Jeroen Bottema's curator insight, August 6, 2013 8:04 AM

Mooi plaatje, geeft de student inzicht in de verschillende rollen van de leraar. Meer dan alleen 'sage on the stage'. Verder onderschrijf ik de opmerking van Susan Bainbridge.
