Over the past two and one-half years, the NMC Campus project has grown to be the largest educational project in any virtual world, one that involves hundreds of institutions and over 7,500 educators and students working and learning in the virtual world of Second Life. This project is self-sustaining, and recovers all its costs via operations and activities conducted within that virtual space. This session will present what the NMC has learned through their effort, and will allow participants to see extraordinary applications of virtual world technology, discuss the up and down sides of using a virtual environment, and learn how the people behind this effort see the future of virtual worlds unfolding.
