EDUCAUSE – 7 Things You Should Know About Virtual Worlds

     A virtual world is an immersive online environment whose "residents" are avatars representing individuals who participate through

     the Internet. Many institutions are experimenting with virtual worlds for educational purposes. They may foster constructivist learning

     by placing students in a context that challenges them to learn without explicit learning objectives and assessment.

 

EDUCAUSE – 7 Things You Should Know About Second Life

     Second Life is a virtual world with tens of millions of square meters of virtual lands, more than 13 million “residents,” and a thriving

     economy. Large numbers of colleges and universities—or, in some cases, individual departments or faculty—are active in Second Life,

     not only for academic purposes but also for campus visits, recruiting activities for prospective students, and fundraising. Second Life

     lets educators easily build and modify learning spaces to test how different strategies for a physical space affect learning, and a

     similar approach can be taken toward educational activities in those spaces.
