JISC Second Life guide helps lecturers teach in the virtual world

JISC's new guide to Second Life is written by lecturers for lecturers, to help others to use virtual worlds for teaching.

'Getting Started in Second Life' answers some common questions like how to set up in Second Life, what the rules of the world are, how to plan lessons and how best to help students use it effectively for learning.

The aim of the guide is to present the basics in order to help lecturers experiment, rather than them getting lost in mastering the detail of the virtual environment.

To download 'Getting Started in Second Life' or order a paper copy, go to
