Second Life

By Jeanne Brown on September 21, 2006 1:37 PM | Permalink
I have recently been introduced to Second Life, a simulated environment (http://secondlife.com/). From what I understand, some universities are teaching courses in Second Life -- including architecture courses. People buy "land" in this simulated environment, and they build buildings -- including libraries!! Is anyone in the UNLV School of Architecture (or even anyone on campus) on? in? involved with? Second Life?? If so please contact me. I have not yet set up an avatar, but plan to do so, at least to explore. The main cause for my delay is the import of choosing an avatar name : )
