All these floors are still under construction. But, all members are welcome to use these places for set as home or have your show!
Discussion: call for research practices in Cyberland (Thanks for Dr. Marylou Goldrosen provide this discussion topic and lead discussion)
These studies start small–pilot studies, with prequestionnaire and postquestionnaires. Part of the problem of research is time—everyone is so busy.
You can sit in the Nonprofit meetings on every Friday mornings around 8-10:00 SL time. Someone is documenting them now and interviewing them. You can catch the posted meetings at the ampitheater their at Nonprofit COmmons
