Second Life parcels available for Duke faculty and student use

If you would like a way to learn more about Second Life, to practice building or using virtual environments, or to provide your students with space for a virtual project, a limited number of small parcels are available on Duke Student Affairs Division’s Second Life island for Duke students and faculty to use. You could use the parcels as a “home base” for hosting a virtual meeting, plan and build a virtual structure, or just explore the options Second Life provides for teaching and learning.

Faculty and students can contact Tim Bounds for information about the parcels available (tim.bounds@duke.edu). CIT can consult with faculty about how Second Life and other virtual world tools might be useful in their teaching.
