Second Life: Distance Learning, Avatars and the Virtual Campus of SJSU School of Library and Information Science

Last month, I posted a link to the video entitled “Knowville 3D Second Life” created by SL Greylin Fairweather, in real-life a graduate student at San Jose State University School of Library & Information Science. Greylin told me then about the planned visit by KQED, the PBS station in San Francisco, to interview San Jose State University School of Library & Information Sciences faculty and students about their use of distance learning through a virtual campus on Second Life, a 16-acre island purchased by the SLIS faculty in 2005.

This program aired in Northern California on Sept 25 2007.

Thanks again to Greylin Fairweather for keeping us up to date on Second Life activities.
