Activating AbTeC Island

AbTeC Island is AbTeC’s headquarters in cyberspace, situated in the online 3D virtual world, Second Life.

Activating AbTeC Island is an initiative to see what can happen if we open an Aboriginally determined location in cyberspace to the public. Every Thursday, from Noon to 2:00 PM EST, members of our team will log in and actively welcome visitors to AbTeC Island. We can show you around, help you to customize your avatar, or even teach you how to build a snowman in our virtual studio/classroom!

Anyone can visit. All you need is a Second Life account and the program installed on a computer that meets Second Life’s System Requirements.

Once you’re logged in, there are several ways to get to AbTeC Island:

Method #1

While logged into Second Life, paste the following link into your web browser bar. It will open a new window with an option to “Visit this Location”. Click to confirm.

Method #2

While logged into Second Life, use its Search function, like this:

Select World > World map [CTRL + M] from the drop down menu;

Type “AbTeC ” into the search bar and click Find;

Select AbTeC from the search results and click Teleport.

If neither of these options work, and you are accessing AbTeC Island during our scheduled hours, do a people search for one of the following team members who will be online to rescue you:

  • Abbi Bigboots
  • Abbi MacBeth
  • Abbi Zipper

Note: Anyone with the first name “Abbi” is a member of the AbTeC team.

If you are still having trouble finding us, call us!
