Virtual Life, the Metaverse and Everything

Debbi Duncan, University of Wisconsin -Oshkosh


This presentation will provide an overview of how immersive learning and libraries have adopted virtual worlds as a catalyst for the development of new applications of technology to support learning and creative expression. It will also provide an overview of how libraries are using Second Life and other virtual environments in promoting the services that they offer. Session attendees will be allowed to log in to Second Life for a short hands-on experience in creating an avatar, navigating around within Second Life and visiting some of the interesting things to see and do.

Debbi Duncan is Academic Librarian/Second Life & Immersive Learning Coordinator at the University of Wisconsin - Oshkosh.
