Growing number of educators explore 'Second Life' online - CNN.com: "A growing number of educators are getting caught up in the wave. More than 60 schools and educational organizations have set up shop in the virtual world and are exploring ways it can be used to promote learning.

The three-dimensional virtual world makes it possible for students taking a distance course to develop a real sense of community, said Rebecca Nesson, who leads a class jointly offered by Harvard Law School and Harvard Extension School in the world of 'Second Life.'

'Students interact with each other and there's a regular sense of classroom interaction. It feels like a college campus,' she said."
