  I did not tell them not to do this, nor did I provide an  
evaluation .  I asked why they would choose this to do this in sl  
versus doing it on the web?   I was pretty clear about that, I'm  
interested in the reasoning for choice of sl to read texts and to give  
quizzes on those texts.    I think that is an important question,  
don't you?

I think you are summarily misrepresenting my position.   I think  
anyone can do what they want, but I think it is also important to  
think about the way we use our technologies.  That is something people  
value as educators, no?   Reflection on the choice of technology, the  
propriety of those choices, etc... is what we do.     If that is not  
what you do, feel free to drop my emails in the bit bucket:)
