The Northwest Area Computing Council has granted $10,000 to The Center for Advanced Technology in Education (CATE) at the University of Oregon to create a typology of learning objects found in Second Life and enlist content experts in a number of disciplines to test them out for description and cataloguing. Partnership with Jeremy Kemp of San Jose State to use the Second Life – Moodle mashup known as SLoodle to create the tools used for this indexing of learning objects – large and small – is expected. The development of inworld tools to assist in the nomination, display, and use of the vetted Learning Objects is anticipated to begin within the next month.
