Second Life Learning Commons for Nurses Meeting


We of the Virtual Learning Commons for Nurses (Eastern University) are planning an in-world meeting to discuss the use of immersive technologies (Second Life) for nursing education and library services. The meeting will be held sometime in January. However, we do not have a specific date set.

There are several universities in the USA and UK already implementing nursing programs in SL.  We hope some of you will join us in Second Life and contribute your insights to our discussion of the technologies emerging for nursing distance education and reference.

When we have a specific date, I will post here.

Until then come visit us in Second Life (Teching 10 Island) or join us on the wiki (
