Perhaps someone can point me to the right procedure to find places in SL.  For instance, I searched every category in Search and on Map for Pot Healer's Adventure and came up "none found."
Mahalo!

  Hi Jeff,

  Wow!  I just checked it out and it really fills a need in my  
  opinion.  Two things:

  1. I'm with the SDSU effort. Please contact me and  I can probably  
  fill in some good details for the SDSU post.

  2. I'd like to vote to add Pot Healer's Adventure.  It's not  
  educational by any means, however, it's the best SL effort I've seen  
  that involves multiple puzzles that are best solved collaboratively -  
  all set in a rich visual environment complete with complex  
  backstory.  If one could translate that effort into educational  
  content, I believe one would have a marvelously engaging experience.   
  Check it out!
