I am currently teaching a natural disasters course on-line (as an adjunct
for Illinois State Univ.).  I meet with the class in Second Life twice each
week.  I use the Second Life classroom for real-time interaction with the
students (lecture & powerpoint & to answer questions).  The students are
very interactive and it provides an opportunity to clarify points of
confusion real-time.  During the course, students visit the NOAA tsunami
simulation.  I also have the students complete two term papers on natural
hazards that impact the community in which they live.  In addition to the
papers, they also have to submit a power point overview of each project.  I
convert the powerpoints into jpgs and display them as posters in 2nd Life.
The students are then able to view each other's work.

Bill Shields, my contact at Illinois State, has created a number of 3-d
displays that he directs students in his F2F lecture class to use.  They
include faults, crystal models, & a strike & dip example.

In Second Life search for "Illinois State University Geo Island"

Greetings,

I've recently become part of a Second Life users learning community at
UW-Whitewater? have any of you developed any geology course modules in
Second Life? I'm tentatively thinking of creating field-based activities in
SL? where students can measure outcrop orientations, "collect" samples?
etc., and then use that data back in classroom for making/interpreting
geologic maps? not sure whether this will even work at this point.



Any suggestions/feedback will be most appreciated.  Please contact me at

Thanks

juk

"It is precisely for this that I love geology.  It is infinite and
ill-defined: like poetry, it immerses itself in mysteries and floats among
them without drowning.  It does not manage to lay bare the unknown, but it
flaps the surrounding veils to and fro, and every so often gleams of light
escape and dazzle one's vision."
