Edinburgh University Guidelines for Using External Web 2.0 Services

The University of Edinburgh has recently released a very useful document that will be of value to those working with Second Life and Web 2.0 applications in an educational context. It highlights many, if not all, of the issues that one must consider with the shift away from University hosted (controlled) web-based applications towards external ones such as social networking sites and Second Life. It makes for interesting reading of some of the possible ethical and legal issues that may come to play a part in the success of teaching and research in 3D virtual worlds. It's a draft document of an ongoing wiki.

  4. Its such as you scan my mind! You appear to understand such a lot concerning this, such as you wrote the book in it or one thing. i believe that you simply may do with some pics to drive the message home to a small degree, however apart from that, this is often nice web log. an excellent scan.
