Abstract

This study compared student performances in role-playing activities in both face-to-face environment and Second Life. It was found that students produced similar amount of communication in the two environments, but the communication styles were different. In SL role-playing activities, students tended to take more turns, and have shorter exchanges in each turn-taking than in FTF environment. Students also tended to generate more concept-related dialogues in SL, though they may not be as elaborated as those in FTF environments. The educational implications for this study were discussed.
