Harvard and Second Life

Harvard University Law Professor Charles Nesson and his Havard Computer Science daughter Rebecca give a one hour talk on how they have used Second Life in external studies and credit Law Teaching.  It is a fascinating talk about the value of learning in groups in second life and the ability to simulate actual court room hearings that involve the students in an experiential learning experience in a way, never before, possible.

It explains all the strengths of Second Life and lots of its weaknesses as a learning medium. All from under the auspices of the Harvard University Berkman Centre for Internet and Society. The Centre build Berkman Island in Second Life to house the classrooms and the virtual courtroom.

Thanks to Linda English for drawing my attention to this.
