SL is a MUVE (multi-user virtual environment). This 3-D virtual community is created entirely by its members (residents). Members create a customized avatar to represent themselves and move about in the virtual world. Second Life was developed by Philip Rosedale of Linden Labs, and is open to persons 18 and older. There is a Teen Grid for ages 13-18.

What is Second Life?

Educators are able to join existing groups or create their own. They can attend information and sharing sessions, learn to create objects in Second Life, host or attend meetings, and socialize with other educators. The Second Life educational community merely extends professional development and camaraderie into a virtual environment. Here is a small sample of some existing organizations:
