New MA in Education in Virtual Worlds

Posted by Manuel Frutos-Perez on March 27 2011 at 5:13 p.m.

We’ve been given the go-ahead to begin developing a new Master’s programme in which students will be exploring education in virtual worlds. The programme is planned to go to validation in September 2011 with a planned start date in January 2012. The course will be delivered entirely online, both in Second Life and through the use of VLE and “Web 2.0″ collaboration technologies. It will therefore be able to be studied anywhere in the world – with the usual caveats about time zones But we will be making it as widely available as possible. Prospective students will be able to register for the whole course or parts of it, and even for individual activities like seminar or workshop series.

We’ll be putting up more information in the next few weeks on our website, but if anyone has any questions about the course you can always email us at elearning@uwe.ac.uk .
