SECOND LIFE AT UCM
What is Second Life?:
Second Life® is a 3-D virtual world created by its Residents. Since opening to the public in 2003, it has grown explosively and today is inhabited by millions of Residents from around the globe.
The Second Life Grid provides a powerful platform for interactive experiences.
Over 200 educators from nearly as many universities and colleges use it for classes, research, learning and projects with their students,
bringing a new dimension to learning. Students and educators can work together on the Second Life Grid from anywhere in the world as
part of a globally networked virtual classroom environment. Using the Second Life Grid as a supplement to traditional classroom
environments also provides new opportunities for enriching an existing curriculum.
UCM Presence in Second Life:
