We missed posting a link to a Japan Times article last month on the Pacific Rim Exchange project:
Second Life, Second Lingo
This article was based on the same in-world interview by Tony McNol that was used for the Japan Journal article.
The Edutopia George Lucas Education Foundation article “Student Exchange, Without the Jet Lag” has been put back online at the GLEF.org website. The link in the original post here has been fixed.
