San Jose State opens active campus on Second Life

I did get a golf scholarship to San Jose State about 10 years ago, (which I promptly refused for a better school) they are now opening their “virtual” online campus on Second Life.

Is this a joke?

Well I am glad I am not going to college ever never ever again… That’d be horrible to have to use a virtual world to go to class…

San Jose State University in the heart of Silicon Valley has built a campus at Second Life, the popular virtual world created by Linden Lab in San Francisco.

The virtual university spans 16 digital acres dotted with school buildings that Library Sciences Department students use for classes and experiments.

“When I teach with Second Life, I think of it as an experience generator,” university professor Jeremy Kemp told AFP.
