Educause Review's Back to (Virtual) School Edition

If you are unfamiliar with the Educause Review, the award-winning magazine for the higher education IT community, check out this month's Back to (Virtual) School edition. Editor Teddy Diggs has gathered the featured articles and virtual worlds research from a dozen educational institutions in the web-bonus section.

These articles discuss the future of virtual worlds and the viewpoint ranges from the institution, teaching in a virtual world, student learning, the workplace of the future and an examination of the issues that impact the use of a virtual learning environment.

Many thanks to Teddy Diggs for her exercising her vision and creativity with editorial zeal. She gathered us into a virtual community to discuss virtual worlds and the journal reflects it.
