  • Students’ quotes
    "I did like SL, and I feel that it is a good way to present to different people and around the world."
    "I personally loved doing SL. I think that if I was given the opportunity I would choose it every time.”
    “I loved the flying (once I got used to it), being able to make yourself look the way you want to, and being able to travel to different locations. This can open (and has) so many opportunities to engage yourself in a way that is rewarding for you and the listener.”
  • Explore the Possibilities
  • Pedagogical Considerations
    What activities will best support the defined outcomes for the course offering(s)?
    Which activities will best be carried out in SL and which will be better experienced with other educational activities in SL (field trips, other listed educational events, simulation and role-playing sites)?
    How will activities capitalize on the immersive and social capabilities of SL?
    What guest experts are available?
