Working with Second Life in an educational sense

With the help of SL resident Moggs Oceanlane I was able to get our first Sloodle implementation off the ground. Being a bit new on the SL concepts (Moodle as such is my daily life) I found the technical process quite easy, but was struggling with SL terminology a little.

Looking forward to getting some hands-on experience of the use of SL in an educational setting. I can see the practical applications – looking for some pilot projects to put them into ‘reality’ once we have got all the technical side tested thoroughly.

  1. Hi Leo

    One of the SA E-learning Innovations projects is investigating the use of SL with DECS Business Admin trainees. They might be interested in using SL in Moodle.

    Let me know if you’d like their contact details.

    There are also a number of schools using SL in a project called Skoolaborate:

    And then there’s a Second Classroom ning group of educators using/interested in using SL:

    Good luck, Allison
