Role Playing Alternatives To Second Life

While not an environment like Second Life, Conflict Lab, winner of the 2004 Apple Design for Education, offers media-rich, interactive web-based role-playing based on national and international conflict scenarios. Currently used in university level courses, Conflict Lab offers students the opportunity to participate in opposite sides of a structured negotiation process. Unique resources provide just-in-time coaching, and help participants learn negotiation, communication, leadership, team-building, critical thinking and conflict resolution skills.
Conflict Lab currently offers eight high-quality on-line simulations ranging from environmental and political concerns to cross-cultural and domestic situations. Each one offers a complex and thoughtful experience into the complexity of conflicting views and solutions in a visually enticing interface.
