Towards a Virtual Classroom: Investigating Education in Synthetic Worlds

James Braman, Andrew Jinman, and Goran Trajkovski

Transcending the traditional classroom and that of webbased distance learning platforms, we present the use of Second Life as a medium for learning and information dissemination. In a joint project we are implementing such a virtual space to be used by students, faculty and visitors as a collaborative learning environment and experimental space.
