Teaching Architecture via Second Life — Interview with Terry Beaubois
Terry Beaubois had a problem when he was offered a position teaching architecture at Montana State University. He wasn’t ready to move to Bozeman, Montana where the campus is located. So he figured out a way to teach the course from his home in Northern California by creating a virtual classroom in Second Life but even though he’s now based Bozeman, Beaubois hasn’t abandoned his virtual classroom. In fact he’s expanded it into a program he directs called the Creative Research Lab which is part of the school’s College of Arts and Architecture.
