Students Prefer Real Classroom to Virtual World

Wired Campus – “In her recently published study, “Student Perceptions of a Course Taught in Second Life,” Ms. Cheal wrote that the 15 undergraduate students enrolled in the course raised concerns that too much “play” in the assignments inhibited learning. The students also cited problems with the program’s slow speed and with challenges acclimating to virtual life.”

Second Life is not a game…

    Oh, when I got my MLIS back in 2007, “Second Life” was the Hot New Thing. But in all honesty, what a humongous waste of time, especially for a grad class @ $1,047. We learned nothing..it was like one of those glorified 3-D chat rooms.

    I’m still shaking my head and the waste of time & money.
