Abstract

Multi-User Virtual Environments (MUVEs) such as Second Life provide a rich environment for creating engaging educational activities and interactive experiences. The ability to create objects and control how they interact provides a platform to explore design-based activities such as engineering education. An exploratory investigation was conducted within Second Life to evaluate the presence of educational content related to engineering. The study found that the number of locations in Second Life that are dedicated in some manner to engineering education at the university level is very low.
