Second Life

What is Second Life?


Second Life is an online virtual world, developed by Linden Lab. The virtual world can be accessed freely via Linden Lab's own client programs, or via alternative Third Party Viewers. Second Life users (also called Residents) create virtual representations of themselves, called avatars and are able to interact with other avatars, places or objects. They can explore the world (known as the grid), meet other residents, socialize, participate in individual and group activities, build, create, shop and trade virtual property and services with one another.

How is it used in the classroom?


We have chosen to use Second Life to allow students access to our "island" or virtual land to participate in activities that align with their classes. Examples of these activities include exploring potential jobs in related careers, interactive quizzes, lectures, workshops, study groups, and more.
