Abstract: This article considers some of the unique affordances that Multi-User Virtual Environments-in particular, Second Life-present to the design of learning environments. Drawing upon some preliminary experiences of acquainting teachers in several schools in Singapore with Second Life, specific attention is paid to the inherent spatiality of the Second Life grid, and the implications the consequent sense of place imparts on traditional notions of the content of any given subject domain, as well as on how the understanding of learners can be facilitated and subsequently assessed.
