Abstract

The "Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Library" is real location in a virtual world. Its purpose is to help meet the needs of educators who are using the multi-user virtual environment known as "Second Life" to teach classes. The tools available in the library give teachers an array of devices that help present materials, organize students, collect submissions, and so on. The ICT Library serves as a model for possible integration of real-world teacher support mechanisms as visualized in a virtual world.
