Teachers, college students lead a Second Life

This article covers the use of Second Life at various colleges and universities:

“The class met on Willow Springs-Mama Day Island, designed around the novel that the class was reading, Mama Day by Gloria Naylor. The students visited the grave of a character, then wrote obituaries.

“I build environments where students can really explore the literature,” says Ritter-Guth, of DeSales University in Center Valley, Pa., and Lehigh Carbon Community College in Schnecksville, Pa. “It’s the novel in 3-D.”” – Beth Ritter-Guth
