Professor Robin Watts guided a project investigating the possibilities of using the 3D virtual world of Second Life ® in teaching and learning for nurses and pharmacy students.

 

Students and tutors can review their progress and reflect upon the decisions made about treating the patient. All activity in the clinic is logged and connects to a Moodle (LMS) installation via an opensource mashup called SLOODLE.

Interesting. I am a firm believer in the power of gamification to increase engagement and enhance outcomes in learning. Whether it is a true game such as CD4 hunter, or a learning platform that uses gaming principles to increase comprehension and message retention, results tend to be very positive.
