Second Life – your experience may vary

I was planning a serious piece about the educational uses of Second Life, not least because a session from the recent JISC online conference was conducted in SL. This is an interesting example and something that deserves proper discussion. I was thinking about how the Second Life environment enhanced or detracted from the conference session participation. Did people get too distracted for example by being in an unfamiliar environment, did they feel part of a group, etc. But I’m afraid I got completely side-tracked while discussing this with a colleague who pointed me at this hilarious SL spoof. Well I thought it was hilarious, because it matched my own early experience of SL beautifully.
