A number of my friends are involved in exploring the opportunities for beefed-up education in Second Life. I'm interested in it too, mostly as it applies to models of interaction. I suspect that some of the earlier competence will be developed by universities, especially those with significant online offerings already.

I attended a web presentation presented by Capella University, an online degree-granting institution based in Minnesota, U.S. They have a good idea - short presentations on various topics via live web streaming. But the technology, as might be expected, has some holes.

To cut to the conclusion: when you are presenting something live online, do not neglect to have a phone line open as a back channel. You will save yourself a lot of distress and your viewers a lot of distraction.

Caveat presenter.
