Education in Virtual Worlds, Second Life

Quick Link: Second Life Patient Demo

Kathleen Rose at Resilient Ambassadors of Change wrote a short entry about a Second Life demo she recently attended, where a group of avatars tended to an avatar that had been thrown from his (virtual) motorcycle.

Some very interesting conclusions in the post about real-world, ER-type collaboration here. The group pokes and prods at the still body, as the crashed-avatar, who is available to communicate via text, is able to tell the group what he is feeling. The group then administered ibuprofen to the patient and then placed him on a backboard, ready for transport by an ambulance, which, sadly, the group neglected to have with them.

In the same post, Rose provides links to some other current patient demos of varying quality.
