Recently I did a recording for InSync and my friend Jennifer Hofmann titled Postcards from the 3D Edge: Learning in Second Life. It was the most popular complimentary program they've ever had - so popular they had over 250 registrants in the first 4 hours!
Check out either one of the two sessions. (You'll need to download the WebEx installer as requested when you click on link)
Now we have teamed to provide a 4 week course on the topic to provide even more indepth information. If you want to know about Second Life and how it works. This is the workshop for you. We run 4 Wednesdays from 1:00-3:00 EST. Hands on experience from co-author of the soon-to-be-released book...Learning in 3D.
For more information, see the course description of Navigating Second Life. Also, you can read more about the course!

Here is a description of what we'll be covering.
Immersive learning environments such as Second Life are gaining more and more attention but there are few guidelines to inform the development and encouragement of productive learning (formal or informal) within these environments. Questions like: "How should the environment be designed to encourage collaboration?" "What is the right approach with a large number of learners?" "What is the role of an instructor in one of these 3D environments?" need to be answered and explored.
The workshop provides educators, corporate trainers and others with information on how the 3D world of Second Life can been used to foster and promote informal and formal learning by presenting the basics of Second Life and describing how those basics can be used to create meaningful instruction.
Hope to see you in this educational workshop with no travel and conducted from the comfort of your own computer.
