I am starting my virtual worlds class with LearnNC. I had the opportunity to meet my online instructor, Lucas Gillispie on Skype before class. He encouraged me to try out World of Warcraft (WoW), of course to look for educational applications. BTW, I picked up a copy of WoW and installed it on my laptop today. It really had a hefty hard drive requirement of 5GB! So I finally found my motivation to clean up my laptizzle!
I will further discuss alter what I learned with my class with using Second Life and WoW. Now…. if I am excited about taking a class where gaming is encourage, I am sure that my students will feel the same!
