Abstract For two consecutive semesters in 2010, groups of 54 and 42 undergrad engineering students respectively, in Lima-Peru, participated in a guided experience in which they had to develop a complex product in Second Life (SL), based on an architecture by the project professor, where the different components were developed by the student teams. The focus was mainly on programming using the LSL language. Both resulting scripted systems are still on permanent display in SL. This presentation will show the whole process, from planning, student training and task allocation to development, testing and presentation.
