Teaching in SL


In April 2008, SMU opened its virtual campus in Second Life (SL).  The purpose of this virtual campus is to explore outreach, teaching and research opportunities in this rich, computer-mediated environment.  For information on how other institutions have been leveraging Second Life in teaching and learning, please go to the "Teaching in SL" page.

Our first outreach event will be a Graduation Party on May 31, 2008.  Please go to the "Events" page for more details.
