Sussex University replicates itself in Second Life

Virtual Reality, Web 2.0

sussex_university_second_life.jpgIt’s all been a bit quiet on Second Life news recently (you know how much we love Facebook these days). The rush of companies and organisations setting up shop in the virtual world may have died down, but Sussex University has decided to build a presence there.

The “island” looks like the real campus, and visitors can go to the library, attend online seminars, or visit the Students’ Union.

Possible uses for the virtual campus include the provision of online resources, lectures and seminars, holding virtual open days, broadcasting university news, and showcasing student work.

A virtual drinking competition in a virtual bar isn’t quite the same, though.
