Waseda University opens campus in Second Life

On Tuesday, one of Japan’s most renowned universities, Waseda Daigaku, opened a virtual campus in Second Life. Waseda aims at making it easier for their students to cooperate with those from Princeton University, which has opened a campus on an island in Second Life last year.

Waseda says it wants to explore the possibilities of conducting cross-cultural research in virtual worlds. Students are also able to access the the private university’s digital archive via Second Life. The virtual campus was designed and constructed by Tokyo-based web company Mobile Factory.
Both the Princeton and the Waseda campus can be visited by anyone.
