Dr. Alyson Gill presents ASU's virtual campus
ASU now has a "virtual campus" in Second Lifeóan online multi-user virtual environment in which students can interact with faculty online in real time.

In September, the virtual campus was expanded to include a Virtual Heritage area, where 3D models of ancient monument and heritage sites are being constructed by ASU students. For details about this new teaching environment or to discuss bringing your building into Second Life, contact Dr. Alyson Gill at ext. 3852.
