Virtual World Update
The Oregon Community Colleges Distance Learning Association (OCCDLA) is getting ready to release an announcement about an island in Second Life called OR Community Colleges. At the quarterly OCCDLA meeting last week, Jeremy Kemp and Jonathon Richter spoke to the group about emerging virtual worlds in education.
The Second Life island will likely be only one piece of a community college virtual environment in the future. Sun Microsystem's Wonderland project, for example, may add an important piece to this emerging educational technology.
