Is the Virtual World the New Learning Management System?


Is the Virtual World the New Learning Management System?

Coggno Inc. | Dec, 2 2008

Are Virtual Worlds the New Learning Management Systems? Given all the present obstacles in software like Second Life, is it possible that businesses will come to see virtual worlds as a communicative, organizational, and profitable economic platform? Will virtual worlds take over functions that a learning management system now serves?

If virtual worlds are destined to become the new learning management system, it’s wise of companies to start investing now. Sandy Kearney, director of IBM’s virtual worlds program, insists that the transition is coming. And she predicts that “you many not have as much time as you had with the web” to adjust to its impact. The time it took to get used to a learning management system or other workplace tools may feel like centuries compared with the short time we’ll have to adjust to the sudden omnipresence of virtual worlds in the workplace.
