Linden Labs have announced an update to their pricing for Educational and nonprofits Institutions. The news came via Second Life’s Community blog, this week (July 24th 2013). In the early days of Second Life, it was a prime location for Education and Non Profit institutions offering a way for users to connect with each other from around the world.
According to the Community Blog Linden Labs posts:
“Effective immediately, any accredited educational institution or any organization with a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit tax status (or equivalent) is eligible for a 50% discount on private region set-up costs and a 50% discount on private region maintenance costs.”
Since 2005 Second Life has been a second home to several institution such as Nottingham University, University of West England and Stanford University.
