Sep 28th 2007 3:24PM I'm a librarian and I'm jealous we didn't have something like this when I was in library school :D
I always thought it would be interesting for students in a Organizational Behavior class to have a project that involved starting a guild (or whatever) in an MMO. I think it would give the students an interesting insight into the activities involved with recruiting and managing a large group of people. It would be something that they would have a hard time doing as a project in the "real world", but easily done in a virtual environment.
I see great potential for learning in virtual worlds.
