The third Learning and Research in Second Life workshop was organised on wednesday, October 7 at Internet Research 10.0 conference in Milwaukee by me, Kim Holmberg and Terry Beaubois. The day was very intense and we had a very productive continuous seven hour discussion that touched multiple aspects of education and research in the virtual world of Second Life. The keynote of the day was held by Pathfinder Linden (John Lester) from the Linden Lab.
It is difficult to say what was the single most interesting thread of discussion during the day, but in comparison to the earlier workshops that have been very much into Second Life itself, this year the focus was on Second Life and its relation to the outside world if such a dichotomy is possible. The outcomes of the workshop will be worked to a paper later this year. And we are already working on the next year's workshop.
We are thanking Linden Lab and AVO project for sponsoring the workshop.
