Second Life Class Begins

Chill Carver a.k.a. me.

I haven’t mentioned Second Life in a while, but I bring it up because my elective class in Second Life began today.  Second Life is an interactive online virtual world in which participants create an avatar which they use to interact with other participants.

The goal of my class is for students to practice English.  Communicating in and about Second Life are both successful outcomes, as far as I’m concerned.

I’ve got a syllabus roughed out and may publish it here once complete.  A lot of it is still up in the air because I don’t know how long it will take to accomplish most of the tasks I have in mind.  Today, we all signed on, which seemed like a pretty big accomplishment at the time.  From here, we will be editing our avatars and learning to locomote, teleport, and build stuff.  Should be fun.
