8% of survey complete.
Thank you very much for completing this survey for my doctoral dissertation research. Your responses will be very helpful in collecting data concerning an important topic in education design and delivery. This survey is intended for those who have taken, taught, or designed a course or courses in Second Life.

The next page contains information about this study, and your participation. Please read the text carefully and then choose 'Yes' or 'No' at the bottom. Remember this survey is voluntary and you may quit at any time.

The survey is grouped into several sections. The first set of questions collects demographic information that will be very important for analyzing the data and drawing correct conclusions. The second section contains some questions concerning logistical or implementation decisions at your respective institutions. There are three sets of similar questions, based on whether you have taken, taught, or designed courses for the Second Life environment. You will only need to respond to the questions that apply to you as the survey will automatically skip the questions that do not apply, based on your responses. Finally, the last question provides space if you wish to provide additional narrative that you believe will be helpful to the researcher.

Some of the questions require responses before continuing. The first question asks you to create a unique identifier that will be used solely to allow the researcher to check for duplicate surveys and in no way traceable to the respondent. I am not collecting IP address or other tracking information; however I would like the ability to remove duplicate data sets.

Thank you again very much for taking time from your schedule to help with this research project. Researchers depend on the willingness of people to share their data and experiences so that all areas of life can be improved, and such is the case with this study. The evidence is clear that 3D online virtual environments may be used for education delivery in some fashion and studies like this one seek to improve both the theoretical foundation and operation efficacy of this new technology.
