An Online Exploration Of Second Life's Virtual College Campuses

When the massively multiplayer online gaming trend was in full swing in the early to mid 00s a game called Second Life appeared with promises of “a 3d virtual world where you can be whoever you'd like and build and sell whatever you can imagine”.

However, most MMO players found Second Life's virtual world to be a bit too much like real life, which is exactly what those few remaining SL "residents" are looking for- a virtual life to live in addition to their own.

This realism even drew the attention of various colleges and universities, who built virtual campuses in Second Life hoping to take higher education where it had never gone before.

Fusion's Patrick Hogan took a trip into Second Life to see what's left of these virtual campuses, and his findings don't hold out much hope for the avatar based collegiate experience.
