Paper: Sustaining the future through virtual worlds

Paper "Sustaining the future through virtual worlds" has been accepted at Annual Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education Conference (ASCILITE), 2012, results of educational survey put together by Susan Gregory at UNE, with me as one of many authors.  Paper is here.

Abstract: Virtual worlds continue to be used in Australia and New Zealand higher education institutions although the hype has settled. Whilst some higher education institutions continue to use virtual worlds as they have done for some time, other institutions are trialing different virtual worlds and some are opting out altogether. An overview of how 46 authors from 28 institutions see virtual worlds as an opportunity to sustain the future of higher education is presented. The positives and negatives of using virtual worlds are discussed.
