    "Learning how to "live" in a virtual world. Absorbing information. Setting up an Educational venue. What is a virtual world? A virtual world is "an online electronic presence that imitates real life in the form of a personal presence through someone's avatar (the alter ego which is a graphical representation of themself in the virtual world)". Sue Gregory "

  • So what's changed? Absolutely nothing. Everything described above continues to occur, with a truckload of evolutionary steps undertaken. The only difference is that the innovators and educators have got on with doing the do, while the majority of the mainstream media moved on to the 'next big thing'. Second Life has grown exponentially over the past four years, although it has reached a plateau over the past year or so. Part of the reason for that is the emergence of other worlds where content creation remains king, such as the open-source option OpenSim or emerging Second Life competitors like Blue Mars.

    Just coming down from the Virtual Worlds Best Practice in Education conference. Held Friday, Saturday, Sunday Second Life time there was a great range of sessions, largely in traditional conference settings over several sims.
