Welcome to the latest “Inside the Lab” Podcast, a Discussion on Education in Second Life
I had the pleasure of talking with Pathfinder Linden and Claudia Linden about some of the fascinating education projects taking place in Second Life. These two expert Lindens share some of what they’ve learned working with educators inworld and at conferences, as well as from participation with some of the groups described in the podcast (see links, below.)

“Inside the Lab” Podcast Series
This Discussion on Education in Second Life is fourth in the series of behind the scenes looks at Second Life, talks with a variety of Linden Lab team members about what they’re doing in Second Life and how their work could impact your experience.
The series began with Philip Linden’s Vision for Second Life in 2008, followed by a more technical talk, Joe Miller’s Insight into the Engineering Team at Linden Lab. Third in the series was Inside the Lab Podcast with the WindLight Team, packed with helpful information on WindLight, including information on stability improvements, and Torley’s favorite new WindLight features.
Please join us for an informal look into the people, projects, and culture at Linden Lab.
