Second Life Recap

Last week, we enjoyed a fascinating presentation on using Second Life as a 3D immersive learning environment by ASU Librarians Sandra Ley and Beverley Schlee.  They gave us an overview of Second Life, including some avatar creation basics, and then took us on a tour of some really interesting projects.  Here are some useful links:
