Second Life: Transforming the Way UT Arlington Engages Online Students – Faculty eCommons

See on Scoop.itCalling All Lecturers

The College of Nursing at the University of Texas (UT) at Arlington is known for its innovative use of cutting edge technology, in both the classroom and clinical settings, to improve students’ experiences.  As an integral part of their technology initiatives, UT Arlington incorporates Second Life into their online Nursing courses. Although Second Life is not inherently an educational tool, UT Arlington has found the 3D virtual world to be an effective platform for mimicking real-life community and interaction.

Karen Johnson‘s insight:

For once an interview that asks appropriate questions about teaching in SL.  I’m sure lecturers will find the discussion here really helpful and interesting.  I’m certainly going to suggest this as a "goog read" for some of our lecturers who are using SL in their teaching.
