Please check out this link. It is amazing. The Learning Experience is a virtual school and university. There are interactive story book activities for the younger ones, a virtual zoo and marine park, a museum, a war memorial...

The goal of the Learning Experience is to provide free education, including free university schooling, to anyone who has access to a computer. This is a global plan, and they are well on their way to achieving that goal. It is avatar based, so the student creates an avatar, walks around, interacts with other students, attends classes in classrooms and so on. Their plan is to be an accredited university within the next two years. I learned about TLE because of the potential there for my son, who is autistic. He loves the place. And because it is avatar based, he is just like every other student there, where skin color, religion, disability or whatnot are of no concern. They have even produced live plays and concerts, and overall, students are exposed to so much more without having to be within range of a modern city.

Of course, this doesn't replace or compete with bricks and mortar institutions, but rather it helps to increase the scope and availability of education to all people. It also leaves no carbon footprint in the real world.

Learning Experience is still very young, but growing every day. To meet their goals, they require, among other things, people. And I thought this thread might be one way I could help let as many people as possible know about them.

They have a growing community of writers, and they offer of free workshops for creative and short story writing.
I hope you will check them out. if you have questions or need help, please feel free to ask here or contact them directly.

Just think, a totally free, totally green global education... what better gift can you give to the world?

Here is a link to TLE's Blog. it has daily updates about what has been added to the program. it also has updates about the different courses and workshops.

they also have a publishing house, which they have plans to grow.

The Learning Experience established The Learning Experience Publishing House to further enhance reading pleasure. Within Second Life itself, we have over 150 books published in the Second Life format which places The Learning Experience Publishing House as the most prolific publishing venture in Second Life.

for writers, there is an opportunity for work as well. I hope you'll take a look.


Almost 85% of these book are the result of the researchers we hire to research information for TLE Interactive World History Museum and TLE Interactive Animal, Zoo, Marine Biology Museum. The rest of these books were taken from a variety of old famous books on which the copyright no longer exists and therefore are in the Public Domain.
