The Wired Campus has an interesting article on nursing students at Tacoma Community College. In John Miller's class, the students practice interviewing patients in Second Life.
This sort of activity, of course, is one that could be carried out in a classroom, but I can see the advantages of having student interview other "people" who are for the most part, strangers. It will be a different and valuable experience.
They forgot to mention the Ann Myers Medical Center where we've already had some medical exercices...
Berci: Thanks for adding a great example! I was remiss in not mentioning it.
It's not your mistake, Sandra! :)
