Greetings all,

I am working on a syllabus for a foundation course at the School of
Information here at the University of Michigan, and we are hoping to
introduce the students to some kinds of thinking about the social web
using Second Life as a case study.

I am looking for recommendations of scholarly/pedagogical papers about
the following:

1. using SL to educate (holding classes in SL, etc.).
2. papers discussing groups that evaluated whether or not to create a
presence in SL (I am interested in documentation of the evaluation
process, not the outcome of the evaluation).
3. information about where to go if a student wants to know more about SL
4. SL "walk-throughs", i.e. what it is, what you can do, etc. (tutorials)

much thx in advance,
