Virtual Worlds, MMORPGs and the Bloggerverse

Educators using virtual worlds and MMORPGs (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) often use social media to document and curate their experiences. For the SITE conference there is even a Flickr group for  SITE CITY LIMITS that has started to do screenshots of the Cowboys v. Aliens area in Second Life.


Since 2004, the Edublog awards have been offering a community driven people’s choice awards for blogs, social media and social networks centered on education.

For the Edublog awards 2011 – here were the virtual worlds and MMORPG nominations:

This is the first time that a World of Warcraft guild has been nominated for a EduBlog award.
