Virtual Book Launch Event
I gave a talk in Second Life, along with my collegue Dr. Simon Ball, on our chapter in the recent real-life book :
“Higher Education in Virtual Worlds Teaching and Learning in Second Life” ( available at Amazon 😉 )
We had little in terms of real research evidence to present in the chapter and at the session – the use of virtual worlds in education is so new. It was a good chapter and a good talk but I wanted to give more useful information, but, like everybody else, I will have to wait until the experts in the field of the mind begin their studies.
The conclusion we came to is: be aware that one persons immersive experience can be anothers stifling uncomfortable nightmare, so proceed with caution, but do it anyway!
