Project – Learning From Online Worlds; Teaching in Second Life

This project is funded by the Eduserv Foundation and it begins in June 2007, and runs for 12 months.

The project team, Diane Carr, Martin Oliver and Andrew Burn, will research learning in two online, social worlds, Second Life and World of Warcraft. Based on the learning that we identify, we will propose relevant pedagogic practices, and test these by teaching four sessions in Second Life over the course of two semesters.  Project outcomes will include an analysis of learning in social worlds, a report of tried and tested teaching strategies within Second Life, and reflections on the methodologies employed throughout.
