Second Life: 'Killer app' or distraction?

There's a lot of buzz about creating virtual campuses on Second Life, but what are the practical uses?
East Carolina University is using its virtual campus to teach 10 courses this semester, as well as host a career services center.
WSU's Second Life campus is here. And a video interview with the students who created it is here. DDP doesn't offer courses on Second Life, not yet at least.

Would you like to take a course in Second Life? Do you think it's the wave of the future, or a passing fad?

  1. I think it would be great for open mike events, like poetry readings or music.
