Dominique Parrish's insight:
Robots replacing people ... this virtual patient allows nursing students to practice competencies that they need in their professional practice. A large number of nursing competencies are learnt through trial and error but the availability of patients to practice on is not commensurate with the demand. Virtual patient is a very sound solution to the issue of nursing students not having enough clinical practice and skills development opportunties.
The potential of virtual tours of archaeological sites enhancing learning experiences is significant. Students can view countless sites without leaving the classroom. I could see this being used by teachers in numerous ways. The teacher could use the archeological sites as a way of introducing and explaining about key information. Students could be given a selection of sites and asked to identify, describe and explain certain features of the sites. This resource provides a modification to learning that would enhance students' understanding and appreciation of archeological content.

Dominique Parrish's insight:
So much of the content taught in health science programs that are offered in my faculty are covered in the second life forums presented in this YouTube clip. Second life is an engaging way to communicate information and have students apply information in a simulated authentic context.
Second life provides a means of enabling students the opportunity to engage in activities that they otherwise would not be able to. In a nursing context I could see the potential for virtual worlds to be used to give students an opportuntiy to interact in simulated scenarios that are based on actual encounters they might have in a real world nursing situation. The virtual scenario would allow students to contemplate how they might appropriately respond without the pressure of time and circumstance. Groups of students could discuss alternative responses and the value of these responses and then construct a best practice response that is enacted in second life.
