Technology Detail

SecondLife
Second Life is a free 3D virtual world where users can socialize, connect and create using free voice and text chat.

Who is using this technology?

Bill
I've used Second Life in a few different ways. 1. As a platform for collaborative building with students. 2. As a meeting place for online students. 3. As a venue for role playing activities, i.e. Students in my Learning Theory class show up as their favorite learning theorist and role play a discussion on popular learning theories.
