十二月 21, 2007

Leicester University has launched a research project to identify the educational benefits of virtual worlds - in the web-based virtual world Second Life. This week it established an "experimental research island" in Second Life to provide a place to examine how learning and teaching in 3D worlds can best be achieved.
