Since 2007, NOVA has had a campus in the virtual world called Second Life. NOVA routinely has more than 300 students active in this campus each semester. Few faculty members are aware that the campus exists or how they might incorporate it into their classes. This presentation will be a brief look at the campus and how faculty and staff are currently using it, followed by a discussion of how you might use this tool to expand learning opportunities for your students. Registration is now available.
