Virtual Collaboration An Investigation into the Influence of Avatars and 3D Virtual Environments on Team Effectiveness

Abstract

In this paper we report on several exploratory studies in which we investigated Second Life’s potential use as a platform for facilitating information processing and communication support. After first providing a brief explanation regarding our motivations for exploring Second Life, we subsequently describe our experiences and the approach used, which ultimately resulted in the creation of a virtual campus. Our preliminary findings are combined with insights obtained from pedagogical research. This chapter ends with the presentation of a research agenda which can serve to guide us in our further research.
