MachinEVO is an EVO sessions workshop for video productions of language learning conversations in Second Life

MachinEVO is all about producing films of language learning conversations undertaken in Second Life. A film of Second Life (SL) is called a machinima and it is derived from a combination of machine and cinema. Essentially it means recording the screen of the application Second Life. A machininma uploaded onto a video sharing site may also be playing on a mobile app increasing the accessibility of these productions.
