Fame or Infamy

I had a look at the library blog search engine Libworm this morning and did a search for “virtual worlds“. Guess whose blog entry came up at the top of the results?

I have never been one to try to get to the top of any search ranking and was pleasantly surprised to see this. I’m currently doing research to try and find what other TAFE colleges are doing in Second Life or other virtual worlds and would love to hear from colleges in Australia who are dipping a toe in the water.

The Australian Police Force is planning to conduct recruitment interviews in Second Life which may make our management think twice about dismissing it as “just a game”. I have read that the British Police ran a similar experiment recently and, although they din’t actually employ any of the people they interviewed in the virtual world, it certaimly raised the level of awareness of their recruitment drive.
