Spring 2013 Courses Offered in Second Life

Second Life Logo

Exploration of virtual worlds is rapidly being adopted and "inhabited" by people for social networking, business, and education. Immersion into these virtual worlds allows for higher levels of social engagement through the use of personal cyber representations (avatars).

Drury continues to lead our community in virtual classes through Second Life, allowing students to learn through the dynamics of virtual realities using activities such as simulations and role playing.

It is highly recommended that students first complete the one credit hour course, Introduction to Virtual Worlds: Second Life, held during the first 8 week session of the term. The course is designed to assimilate students new to virtual worlds into Second Life, covering the basics of virtual navigation, dexterity, avatar creation, building, economics, collaboration, presentations skills and community. All Second Life enhanced courses are held in the second eight week session of the term. Second Life enhanced courses have the 'SL' descriptor in the course ID, such as GSTU 0199 E MAIN SL 01A.


All Second Life courses have a scheduled day and time to meet within Second Life.
Meeting in Second Life at the time designated by the instructor is a required part of the course.
