ABOUT BUILDERS BREWERY

 

Established in early 2008, the Builder’s Brewery is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit free school, help group, and creative resource. A rather strange name for a school perhaps, but that’s just a hint of what makes this thriving, creative, education-based community so much fun.

We are proud to be THE largest, and one of he most active and respected educational resources on the Second Life grid, if not in all virtual worlds for that matter. From our highly acclaimed school with free classes, to our fun and helpful ”Builders Brewery” group, a three-time winner of the coveted Avi Choice Award for “Second Life’s Favorite Group”

We strive to promote and elevate the quality of virtual environments, as well as the user experience, through education, sharing, and support, in a relaxed, social, and immersive atmosphere. A fun, yet serious platform, for individuals to learn best practices, and encourage high standards in all aspects of their creativity and content creation for virtual environments.

Our brand of Education does not just stop at teaching one how to create for virtual environments, we also provide education in areas outside of the virtual environment, such as business and marketing, to photography and other specialties. We believe that creating and learning does not just stop at skillsets attained, but we strongly encourage the core values of respecting Intellectual Property Rights of creators, as well as respect for the surrounding environment, and the interaction with individuals from all walks of life and ability. We are in the era of online learning, where we have an International community, brought together as one. We believe all of these factors are the foundation required to help build for better, more successful Virtual Environments long into the future.
