    Abstract

    Collaboration is an activity that is considered important during the learning process. Good communication between group members is essential to achieve quality output. Recently, virtual worlds gained excessive popularity in educational settings and more and more lecturers are incorporating live activity or lecturing sessions in environments like Second Life (SL). In this work we are investigating how students of a conventional university perceive collaboration, communication and attending lectures in a 3D virtual environment. Initial results show high perception and students’ openness to the 3D world’s experiences.
