There are hundreds of healthcare support groups in the virtual world of Second Life, but how does one educate a visitor about them?
HealthInfo Island started out with a simple list of support groups, then created a path with posters. It was at this point that the Path was handed to me.
I took my inspiration not from medical literature, but from Disney. Organization was less about taxonomies, than Japanese gardens. The material was not didactic but traced the arch of a story of empowerment.
The Path grew out of my sketches and thoughts. I hope it helps others:
The Path was eventually created and lasted for over a year before an island wide redesign. Screen shots and an older article.
