Hi Sultan


First, do you have a url for the VWRL list? I can't seem to find it
through google?


Secondly, I'm also looking at doing my PhD in virtual worlds/education
so am interested in what other people are doing and how they are, and
how they managed, to do it. Do you know if there is a forum or any sort
of network established for people doing research in this area?


Thirdly, I'm currently trying to put something together to educate
students about memory skills on our new (under construction) virtual
student learning centre, and would like to hear more about your memory
experiments. Perhaps you could contact me (SL or RL) to discuss this

I am trying to set up some basic memory experiments.  I wouldn't think
that there would be "explicit learning theories in SL" as it would be
the same learning theories as in RL.  

Those of you doing research might want to join the Slrl list and the
VWRL list.  Neither are as active as SLED but they are set up to be
research lists.

Congratulations John for your great accomplishment. 

Since I am working on my MA dissertation in SL, I am interested too to
learn about your PHD research. 

Also, I have an enquiry which you or may be other members in the list
have an answer for. 

Are there explicit learning theories in SL? If yes, could you please
guide me to any references about this?

	Hello everyone,
	I've seen a few more postings from individuals who were doing
formal research in SL as a part of an academic degree: Masters level and
PhD. I'm curious just how many others are doing so...or at least are
wanting to do so?  I've just received my PhD after doing an extended
mixed-methods research study in SL, and though the school had some
initial reservations about Second Life, my committee stepped-up and
really helped me get the topic approved. I learned a lot in the process,
and would be happy to talk with others who might be trying to accomplish
the same thing. Feel free to contact me off-list.
	Best of luck to everyone determined to keep moving the virtual
worlds forward!
