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."

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!
