Integrating Education Into a Virtual World Learning Center

Avatar Classroom

American TESOL Institute’s VWLC, or Virtual World Learning Center is an area to study TESOL in an online three dimensional environment.

Advantages of this method include a more personalized approach to online classroom discussions, integration of online gaming into learning, reduction of carbon footprints, and learning how you as a teacher can utilize a VWLC for your own class.

Disadvantages include mandatory software downloads, out-of-date technology that students can not use to access the VWLC, and understanding the fundamentals of navigating in an online three dimensional environment.

Methods to creating a VWLC can be as simple as organizing group discussions into your existing VLC.
