Title "Resistance is futile: making a case for virtual worlds"
Author(s): Joe Essid
Date Thursday, March 15 15:00
Location: Central Auditorium
Abstract VWER Roundtable MeetingWhen no one challenges you for calling Second Life a "legacy" application, and a campus technologist says to you "Oh, no one talks about Second Life anymore," you know that hard times have come to 3D immersive learning. In our text-chat session, we will indeed be epic, by focusing not so much on arguing with such individuals but arguing for the use of virtual words in learning. In this financial and administrative climate, what cases can be made? What resources key to making a good case? Come to this special meeting of the Virtual Worlds Education Roundtable and share your ideas.
