Rutgers in Second LIfe

Having written a small bit about Second Life, I like to keep an eye out for universities exploring what the game might mean for them. Rutgers Continuous Education has opened a competition, called Innovations in Learning, within Second Life looking at creative educational tools and techniques for use in the metaverse. I think the potential for creative problem-solving and innovation is strong, and the prizes are compelling (1st place gets a Mac Book Pro). But I can't help but wonder how many students we have that will have both the technical skills to build something new and the time to do it.
