Do any Hubbers have experience of using Second Life (SL) for education or training? I'm keen to hear real-life experiences of its use. I'm very new to SL and my interest, professionally, is in specialised training although I am also a qualified science teacher.
I'm really impressed with what I've seen so far but think its real strengths lie in education; particularly at University level. If you are interested, I've put my first impressions of SL into a Hub:
Thanks for this Write-on - I have added a link to your Hub from mine. You've got a comprehensive set of links to all kinds of on-line learning. Excellent stuff.
I still have a few reservations about SL but I think Virtual Worlds have a big future in business, education and training - I'm going to a conference in London next week on e-learning and new training technologies so it will interesting to see what comes out of that.
If you are interested in Second Life and Education - I've just published a new Hub on the subject. I'm working my way (in terms of Hub writing) through all the aspects on Second Life including business, social networking, shopping, leisure, crime and finally sex ( not that I have any personal experience of sex in Second Life!).
