Today's students are increasingly choosing to move beyond the traditional physical classroom educational model. The Internet has created an educational evolution fostering learner-centered environments to meet these new educational needs. Virtual worlds offer opportunities for faculty and students to expand their realities and explore new dimensions in learning, involving students in ways other online environments often struggle to achieve. Worlds like Second Life offer opportunities for creative thinking, social connections, simulated experiences, immersive field trips, and other interactive encounters where students discover learning from within and around themselves.
