    7. 8. Effective Student Learning
    8. 9. Learning Continues <ul><li>Student groups have returned to second life on their own </li></ul><ul><li>More cohesive group project </li></ul><ul><li>100% engagement </li></ul><ul><li>Improved student learning outcomes compared to other groups that met via telephone or e-mail exchanges </li></ul>
