Formatted Abstract/Summary
This paper describes a project that involves the production of machinima created in Second Life for use as a discussion support tool for sugarcane farmers in Queensland, Australia. Discussion support systems in agriculture are processes which foster discussion between stakeholders about shared issues of concern and may lead to awareness raising, learning, skill development and improved decision making. This paper describes the production and preliminary evaluation of the first of these decision support machinima.
