  • Companies are combining the use of Second Life and the (Nintendo) WiiMote to train employees on things such as:

    • Inspecting a house for moisture and heat sources

    • Mixing chemicals and loading them onto a truck

    • Power Plant training

    • Driving simulations

      • Using products like Google Maps and Google Earth, simulation can represent actual streets on-screen, so that not every trainee in America has to drive down the "same mythical Maple Street”.

      • Training modules include those intersections and locations where there is a history of accidents.


Conferences

Conferences

  • SL provides online facilities for entire conferences to take place via the web
