Learning environments are being transformed by the advance of emerging technologies such as the virtual world Second Life. Second Life provides a virtual learning environment that facilitates community building and enhances engagement for both students and instructors. We have identified the top-10 questions to consider when implementing Second Life on campus, encompassing critical topics such as challenges, best practices, assessment, evaluation, student reactions, faculty feedback, and more. Through an analysis of the experiences of two campuses, Penn State and the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, this session will provide answers to the 10 questions by focusing on specific implementations and development in Second Life.
