Abstract

3-D animated virtual worlds are no longer only for gaming. With the advance of technology, animated virtual worlds not only are found on every computer, but also connect users with the internet. Today, virtual worlds are created not only by companies, but also through the collaboration of users. Online 3-D animated virtual worlds provide a new environment for life, imagination, and education. Second Life (SL) is one of the most popular 3-D animated virtual worlds today. This 3-D animated virtual world is entirely built and owned by its residents (users). In this article, the author talks about Second Life as an alternative platform for delivering art education or teaching art. (Contains 11 endnotes.)
