Virtual World Watch

Tracking activity in UK universities and colleges.

Virtual World Watch (  is funded by the Eduserv Foundation. It is continuing the series of snapshots that have been undertaken by Silversprite Helsinki on the take-up of Second Life within the UK Higher and Further Education sector. While Second Life is still the most used virtual world by  UK academics for teaching and learning purposes, an increasing number are experimenting with alternatives. VWW is extending its research to include these alternatives.

Recent posts on the VWW blog include Buddhist monastery: University of Aberdeen, Leeds Metropolitan University: from Second Life to OpenSim and Second Life at the University of York.  There is also a useful blogroll of UK VW bloggers.
