LCM/Transcriptions is proud to announce its pedagogic and artistic foray into the online world of “Second Life,” a popular 3-D virtual environment that first debuted for public use in 2003 and now supports over 30,000 concurrent users.
Funded by a 2007 Instructional Improvement Grant and developed under the direction of Professors Rita Raley and Alan Liu, the project has successfully created its own experimental classroom space. This property is currently open for all registered Second Life users to explore and utilize for educational purposes. English department undergrads, grads, and faculty are invited to visit our virtual home at the following SLURL location:http://slurl.com/secondlife/Kerlingarfjoll/179/245/46.
For more information on the history and current status of this project, please visit the Second Life Project blog.
