  3. 3. Virtual Worlds Today Teaching in virtual worlds in 2010 on the rise: More than 300 universities world-wide have virtual campuses, many of them teach there project-based, Since 2009, Germans spend more time in virtual worlds than in social media at large (like facebook), Large international community of educators organises itself to research didactic issues HWR Berlin / Ubiquitous Project Management / Dubai 2011 / 3
  4. 4. Value-Add of Virtual Teaching At the Berlin School of Economics and Law: International students spend more and more time away from their “alma mater“ losing contact with “home“ Students of “International Business Management“ spend their internship and study year abroad – need supervision In other courses, internship supervision often happens after the fact, destroying the courses potential value HWR Berlin / Ubiquitous Project Management / Dubai 2011 / 4
  5. 5. Solution Rented 13 ha island in the virtual 3D world of Second Life® since January 2010 Taught Supervision Internship for 17 graduate students located at different places across Europe Weekly virtual meetings (90 min) + Moodle as learning platform + WordPress blogs for reporting Photo: students roleplay of Internship situation in the virtual world of Second Life (HWR virtual island) HWR Berlin / Ubiquitous Project Management / Dubai 2011 / 5

  7. 7. Summary of Results The virtual classroom follows the experiential learning cycle. Many real classroom features can be transferred. Virtual teaching is markedly more interactive for more students than in the traditional teaching situation. Some group learning techniques such as role play work better when carried out by avatars. The effort required to put together an entire virtual course is significant and is only justified when there is significant added value (as in our case of the supervision internship) HWR Berlin / Ubiquitous Project Management / Dubai 2011 / 7
  8. 8. The Entire E-Learning Range Virtual courses and courses offered off-campus as part of a distance education programme Support for off-campus learning: modularisation of online and offline learning content. Blended learning guided by scenarios. Use of Web and new media as needed (didactics) Classroom teaching as usual (with beamer etc) HWR Berlin / Ubiquitous Project Management / Dubai 2011 / 8
  9. 9. Next steps Teaching continues in Second Life with twice the number of students – results still encouraging. Beginning to attract other lecturers by creating show cases exhibiting the added value of virtual meetings One show case will be „virtual project management“, to be used in teaching across different courses of study Photo: student avatars vote by moving around in the opinionator, a 3D virtual Instant survey object (HWR Virtual Islands).
