Comments from some of those who selected Second Life as one of their Top Tools

“My 3D online virtual environment”  Janet Clarey

“I think 3-D synchronous learning is the future. Learning the advantages and disadvantages early in the adoption cycle will help when the 3D web is a reality. Second Life might not be around in the future but it is a good tool for learning about the possibilities and has lead to exciting discoveries when teaching my students how to design for 3D worlds. I’m finding more and more used for it as I design learning events” Karl Kapp
