Welcom to Second Life Collaborative learning Environment

Educators in all fields are encouraged to explore Second Life (SL) to take advantage of it. “SL proved to be a motivational and, at times, challenging but suitable environment to learn”(Cargill-Kipar, 2009, p. 542).

Students in the 21st century are exposed to new technologies in every day life. Old traditional classes are not suitable for many students who prefer to be in online settings.

Therefore, SL offers new ways of teaching and learning that combines the benefits of face-to- face and online classes through new medium.

Although there are a number of disadvantages when using SL in education, educators and students can work together to eliminate any drawbacks.
