"I would agree with Nergiz that the market is not big enough at the moment - at the recent IATEFL conference there was but a single presentation on teaching in virtual worlds, which I take as a pretty clear indicator that it is not of much interest…"

Pete MacKichan commented on Gary Motteram's group SL Experiments Teachers Group
"Gary, it would be helpful if you created a category "SLExperiments" so that we could create discussions that would be part of that category. In the same way is it possible to create group events in ning or are all events site events?"

Hi Ruddell,
I'm a librarian at the University of Manchester and I'm researching foreign language learning in SL and its implications for resource provision in academic libraries. I am doing this work as an Arcadia Fellow at Cambridge University Library. I would like to interview people who are actively involved in foreign language learning in SL (both students and teachers) and, preferably, who also have experience of using academic libraries as part of their foreign language learning. However, I would still like to hear from you even if you only fit into one of these two target groups. I imagine the interview won't be longer than approx. 30 min. I would be very grateful if you would be willing to participate. The interviews will take place in SL (or via Skype) over the next 3 weeks (until early June). Please send me a message and we can arrange a convenient date and time. You are very welcome to pass this message on to relevant colleagues. Many thanks!
Stefanie.
