University of Sydney in Second Life

University of Sydney in Second Life

I’ve been in Second Life a while now, and have been teaching classes there since 2006. My first classes were taught on a little plot of land that I bought myself on a mainland island called Matisse. Next I was given “visiting scholar status” at the Teachers College -University of Columbia sim thanks to Professor Charles Kinzer and I taught for one semester there. For the past two years the New Media Consortium gave the University of Sydney a sponsored plot of land for teaching, thanks to the generosity of CEO Dr Larry Johnson. Finally, in February the University decided to fund some land and yesterday the land arrived! Here’s one of the empty islands, all ready for a very exciting development. Stay tuned🙂

  1. Hi Angela

    Just wondering how your project is going? I’m an Aussie landscaper and explorer in Second Life. Would be happy to lend a hand in beautifying your virtual retreat if this would be helpful! Contact me in world if you are interested. :-))
