Tacoma Community College in SL

I have been working with John Miller on grants and research into Second Life for about a year now. His first class in Second Life has been what I would consider an unqualified resounding success. Often, Second Life, a 3-d, multi-user, virtual environment, is used as an online meeting room. There are good reasons to do that; it can be a great meeting space because of the range of expression, demonstration, and participation that is possible in this space. But its most powerful asset is the ability to create 3-d animated simulations. Combined with role-playing, instructors have a very powerful teaching tool. Click on the link above to the article for an example.
