Abstract The purpose of the presentation will be to share our experiences with incorporating Second Life into a fully online post secondary course offered by Algonquin College, Ottawa, Canada. In the fall of 2010, the course GED5300 The Science of Everyday Life included “field trips” in Second Life. Participants in this presentation will be offered the thinking and planning that went into this initiative, as well as our experiences and observations. In addition, participants will be offered a preview of other Second Life related teaching and learning initiatives at Algonquin.
