This presentation will consider the common aspects of immersive experiences in learning, what kind of experiences are available in "Second Life" a popular three-dimensional virtual world (http://www.secondlife.com) and the issues involved in using Second Life for immersive learning and role-play in academic settings. Finally, we will offer an overview of the issues involved in creating role-plays in Second Life to enable teachers to have a ready toolkit for creating their own.
