LSJ Launches In Second Life

A virtual journalism lecture has been staged in the alternative world of Second Life (SL) thanks to a new initiative from the London School of Journalism (LSJ).

The LSJ has established a college in the virtual world to host seminars and presentations about various aspects of the industry, reports journalism.co.uk.

And the six-month series of free events kicked off last weekend with an inaugural lecture about issues in freelance journalism.

Director Michael Winckworth says the Second Life college will also provide existing LSJ students with an alternative learning environment.

“What Second Life can add is that students can see each others’ avatar faces, and we can combine sound and text.”

He adds: “We think it will give a greater sense of belonging to a group, and so the SL College will be an addition to the services we already provide.”
