Second Life is a 3-dimensional world built by Linden Labs intended on revolutionizing distance correspondence, learning, and interactivity online. Both educators and corporations alike recently have been establishing a presence in order to attract new students, facilitate distance education, or maintain relationships across oceans, time, and language barriers. This paper seeks to evaluate how educators in particular are using Second Life, and observes the successes and shortcomings they have experienced through their explorations in the Second Life “metaverse.”
