Many educators are exploring how they can use Second Life and other virtual world environments to teach online courses or to augment regular courses with online materials. This presentation will explain what Second Life is, how it can be used for educational purposes, and what the faculty and IT support staff are doing at IUP to support the use of virtual worlds for teaching. IUP has four islands in Second Life and is planning to expand. IUP is the fourth most visited higher education site in Second Life.
