Educators explore 'Second Life' online

Educators explore 'Second Life' online

This article is about educators using Second Life. It features Rebecca Nesson who teaches a class offered by Harvard Law School and Harvard Extension School. Nesson uses SL for class discussions, office hours and to introduce international perspectives from distance students all over the world. The article continues to discuss common benefits and drawbacks for using SL in an educational setting. "Second Life on it's own doesn't force anyone to do anything....it's a blank slate and whether it develops into a useful tool depends on what sort of structures are created within." -Marc Prensky
