* Introduction to Field Research Methods in Virtual Worlds: MM 333. Bradley University.
  • Pepperdine University's Online Master's in Educational Technology Program (OMET) has researched and transformed an ordinary, Malibu Island into an extraordinary learning exploratorium. On our side of the island, a central "Learning Theory Exploratorium" has been built which allows visitors to teleport to interactive learning theory rooms and from there to related theorist rooms. Showing interconnectivity, cohesiveness of learning theory, and the processes and theories themselves of which our chosen theorists have researched, we present our custom made project for those who have a thing for learning. Please message avatar Pirate Shipman for more information on the project and Pepperdine's acclaimed Master's program. November 19, 2007. Pepperdine students were available for questions, to explain learning theory, or guide you in the right direction at 6pm and 9pm that night. Professor, Bill Moseley, AKA: Pirate Shipman in SL.
