Abstract

Languages and cultural study was the target for two classes from Texas and Israel that met virtually in Second Life on a weekly basis for six weeks. The analysis of their feedback reveals that students were satisfied from the new pedagogy, the social interaction, convenience in working from home, communicating with students from another country, and cultural understanding. The challenges they faced were connected to cultural differences, time zone restrictions, technology, pedagogy, fears, and collaboration skills.
