SLOODLE - SecondLife/Moodle mashup

To quote from the SEAL website "The potential for ‘freeing up’ of existing mindsets will enable visioning of advanced approaches to learning." It's this 'freeing-up' of mindsets that I think presents the biggest challenge to moving forward with this technology in UK academia today. Moving past the 2D Moodle/Blackboard/WebCT text-based mentality will set learning free. The potential for distance education especially is enormous. The exciting initiatives are those that combine good ideas. SLOODLE is the integration of Moodle (like Blackboard but free) with SecondLife; the integration of Blackboard and Second life is underway as well. Check out Jeremy Kemp's (San Jose Uni) presentation from the Paisly conference, available HERE from the Higher Education Academy's site. Or see the video by Jeremy on blogging into Moodle direct from SL (by Dan Livingstone) below.
