Ideas for Classroom Applications
Idea 2 - Virtual Tours in Second Life
When organizing a virtual lecture, we suggest:
Loudspeakers and individual headsets with microphone are not part of the standard setup of computers in the PolyU laboratories. Therefore, students can ONLY use text communication in class, not voice.
Arrange students to have a class in a lecture theater with loudspeakers and a projector, and allow them to sit in a lecture with an overseas guest lecturer / speaker using Second Life.OR
Assist students to login to Second Life and use "Local Chat", i.e. text, to communicate inside Second Life.
