University Of Texas Moving Into Second Life | Government IT Blog | InformationWeek Government:

"The University of Texas launched a year-long, state-wide initiative to use Second Life in the curriculum for all 16 of its campuses, experimenting with using the platform as a means of providing innovative, low-cost undergraduate instruction involving students, faculty, researchers and administrators.

The Transforming Undergraduate Education Program at the University of Texas System awarded a grant to fund the initiative, driven by a mandate common to many higher education institutions: Reducing or eliminating expensive brick-and-mortar costs while becoming energy efficient. Linden Lab, which developed and operates Second Life, announced the Texas initiative on its blog."
