D.: Putting a Second Life “Metaverse” Skin on Learning Management Systems

By Jeremy Kemp and Sl Jeremy Kabumpo

Abstract

This paper outlines the advantages and weaknesses of Multi-User Virtual Environments for teaching and explores the possible benefits of integrating them closely with traditional Learning Management Systems. We present survey findings of teachers interested in using the Second Life MUVE for teaching. The teachers gave us their opinions about integrating SL and LMS in their classrooms. We finally propose technical methods for creating hybrid systems combining elements of both MUVE and traditional LMS systems for use in teaching. The hybrid system uses the Moodle open source system and Second Life's connectivity features to mirror web-based classrooms with in-world learning spaces and interactive objects. We suggest that further work may help suggest the most suitable educational applications for these hybrid systems
