Abstract

The virtual world of Second Life is an immersive environment in which the participants create the world around them and can participate in rich, multimedia activities. The potential of Second Life should be evaluated for its effectiveness as a virtual learning environment. Can it be an effective tool for preparing new teachers? The authors share their experiences, both good and bad, with Second Life as a tool for teaching and learning.
