Following the recent Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education Conference (April 9th-12th, 2014), Linden Lab has moved to help promote an upcoming Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) designed to help Spanish-speaking educators in the use of Second Life as a starting point in their interaction with emerging and innovative environments that can be used for education.

    As a supporter of the Hispanic community in SL I am glad to find this kind of educational projects that provide support to Spanish speakers in Virtual Worlds. Indeed this is a great initiative and a great step being supported by Second Life . I’ve known this MOOC development through the MOOC technological developer. Professor and Researcher in Virtual Worlds, Amparo Cervantes Arriola from Perú. Mr. Ugaz as always is a great promoter of the innovation on Education. Let’s MOOC!!!
