Second Life is used by many American universities to improve the (virtual) learning. Besides having virtual counterparts of their campus – being either an exact reproduction or an imaginary design – they use the technology to implement various learning scenarios for the students. As part of an ongoing survey, we noticed that in many cases existing educational methods were just mapped into the virtual world instead of using the potential of Second Life to create advanced scenarios and new pedagogical concepts. In this paper, we describe how we started our e-learning project in Second Life from scratch and how the technology can be used for advanced didactical methods in the field of logistics and container terminal operations.
