seminar, presented by Andy Powell, will be an opportunity to see Second
Life in action. It will provide an overview of the features of Second
Life, with an emphasis on its use in education, using a mix of slides,
live demos and discussion.|
Second Life (SL) is a 3-D virtual world, a.k.a. a metaverse, which is attracting quite a lot of interest from the global education community because of its potential use in e-learning. Educational applications include virtual delivery of seminars and lectures, collaborative exercises, tutorials and discussions, virtual archaeology, visualisations of architectural history, art and design applications, and so on.
Andy Powell is Head of Development at the Eduserv Foundation. Eduserv is a non-profit UK educational charity that works to realise the effective use of ICT for learners and researchers.
