New Educational Tools in Second Life

In Second Life, we have some new tools and gadgets to work with at the Ann Myers Medical Center. I would like to share some examples with you and if you’re interested, I would love to be your guide inside the virtual world.

Radiology room:

There is a laptop with plenty of educational resources. If you click on it, you can choose which field you are interested in. Then you can access multiple websites focusing on medical quizzes and radiological images on the browser of SL.

A group of Dutch physicians wanted to see more on the site so we showed them around. At this point, the equipment has no useful function, but we plan to upload CT images (among others)


Now there are two chairs (one for a doctor and one for a patient) where we can listen to cardiac murmurs or lung sounds:

And one more thing. As we often have groups looking around at the center, now (thanks to our builder, Nixx) we can use group teleportation as well.

    I’d love to have a tour. We are intent on building medical simulations in SL, and your experience would be very helpful for us to hear. I am at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. In-world I am Professor Noarlunga. I am building our new island – Long White Cloud. Visitors welcome.
