Virtual Worlds? "Outlook Good"
EDUCAUSE Review, v43 n5 p15-16, 18, 20, 22 Sep-Oct 2008
https://net.educause.edu/ir/library/pdf/ERM0850.pdf
Many people believed that virtual worlds would end up like the eight-track audiotape: a memory of something no longer used (or useful). Yet today there are hundreds of higher education institutions represented in three-dimensional (3D) virtual worlds such as Active Worlds and Second Life. The movement toward the virtual realm as a viable teaching and learning environment currently seems unstoppable. The idea of operating within virtual worlds is not without its drawbacks, especially for higher education. The challenges fall into four major categories: (1) perceptual; (2) technical; (3) operational; and (4) pedagogical. Whether it is Second Life or another virtual world, this foundational movement is improving and moving forward. A question to be addressed in the coming months and years is how higher education and, subsequently, individual institutions will determine the best way to continue to move forward with virtual worlds.

Second Life: Reaching into the Virtual World for Real-World Learning
Kelton, A. J. (2007). Second Life: Reaching into the virtual world for real-world learning. ECAR Research Bulletin2007(17).
https://library.educause.edu/resources/2007/8/second-life-reaching-into-the-virtual-world-for-realworld-learning
This research bulletin examines the current state of Second Life in relation to the educational environment. Although literature about virtual worlds dates back many years, this bulletin reflects on more recent publications that discuss both technological and pedagogical issues. Content is drawn from interviews with educators and innovators who are already involved in building campuses, teaching classes, and providing resources to those using Second Life.

Both dated - but still possibly relevant for a lit review.

best,
aj

Hey, AJ, good points. We?re all sitting on our hands, waiting for the show to start. Popcorn, anyone?

I?ve received some questions about the VWED wiki, where this article belongs. Unfortunately, I am not able to keep that up now. I had so much trouble with spam. I promised the people who worked on the annotated bibliographies that they would stay up, so I have transferred all the bibliographies to my Wordpress site, and I have started to update them.  If you have an article you?d like included, just let me know.

If you have a look, you?ll see that it is intended as an annotated  bibliography, so if you?d like me to post something, please add a couple of sentences to guide researchers to your article.

AJ?s article is linked here: https://elliebrewster.com/research/general-resources/ <https://elliebrewster.com/research/general-resources/>

The main reference page is here: https://elliebrewster.com/research/ <https://elliebrewster.com/research/>

I?m still in the middle of updating the whole site, particularly all my archives from my work at Ohio State (that?s a pretty big job, will take a while).  I?ve also started a new page, recording my efforts to keep track of what?s going on in SL, OpenSim, High Fidelity and Sansar.

Done, A.J.

I think older stuff is important, as there may be quite a few educators reinventing the wheel in the coming years.
