Second Life in the classroom

Author: Roberta Bivins

Type: Case Study


This case study explores and reflects on the use of Second Life® as a direct teaching and learning tool in an undergraduate module. The module in question explores the impact of science, medicine and technology on personal, familial and group identity from the early modern period until the present. The students were given the option to either produce a three-entry blogged media journal, exploring the themes of the class through contemporary or historical journalism, cinematography, television, and other media; or to produce a similar blogged journal of experiences and ‘experiments’ in Second Life®.
