  16. 16. Loyalist College in Second Life •  Customs and Immigration students at Loyalist College used to spend three weeks tailing professional border guards. After 911 this was no longer possible. •  Training suffered until Loyalist College catalyzed a virtual border crossing simulation in Second Life. •  This led to significantly improved grades,taking scores from a 56% success in 2007, to 95% at the end of 2008 after the simulation was instituted.
