Giannina Rossini

Giannina Rossini (Gia), Promotional Representative, Sloodle. Gia was born on the 7th June 2007 after Janina (the person behind the avatar) had accidentally stumbled over the Sloodle project on a blog. To someone who Moodles for a living, Moodle in 3D sounded like a fascinating idea. The description of Sloodle as a “chocolate and peanut butter combination” on the project’s homepage did the rest to lure her into the virtual world.

Gia skipped Orientation Island, headed straight for Sloodleville and very quickly became part of the education community in Second Life™. Often referred to as a Sloodlebrity these days, she is widely known as an enthusiastic point of contact for anyone interested in the Sloodle project.

In January 2008 Gia organised the first Sloodle Moot, a global 24hr community event in Second Life™, which featured a total of 33 presentations and workshops. The event covered a diverse range of Second Life/Moodle/VLE related projects and attracted an audience of educators from as many as 14 countries, with more than 100 participants counted on the website alone.

Giannina passionately supports and promotes Sloodle at every opportunity and continues to represent the project both in the pixel and in person at events and conferences worldwide.
