Welcome to the
Early College Second Life Program
at East Carolina University
The Early College Second Life Program at East Carolina University was launched in the spring of 2009. It is an innovative approach to providing a quality program of instruction. The immersive and creative nature of Second Life provides for economy and efficiency in instructional delivery as students remain in their physical high school location. ECU uses the immersive 3D program as a method to assist instructors in creating a course that engages students with social communication, interactivity, and collaborative assignments. Parents, faculty, and administrators have witnessed student enthusiasm, involvement, and support for this approach to learning – it has made a difference!
