As part of my virtual explorations, I recently toured Woodcrest University—a non-accredited residential and roleplay region. Offering a full range of educational experiences, the classes are real and taught by knowledgeable professionals. During my visit, I sat in on Professor Daragan Cabeza·de·Vaca’s Art & Design class during a lecture about Art Nouveau through Austrian painter, Gustav Klimt. You can read all about my virtual experience in the story I did for the SL Enquirer here.
Looking for a degree you can pin on your real world wall? There are quite a few virtual accredited universities you can visit from your own desk including the Fashion Institute of Technology, Texas A&M University and the Geneva School of Business – University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland. In all, there are over 150 accredited educational institutions with a virtual presence. I’m working on a news story about them right now.
For now, here are a few photos of my trip to Woodlawn University so you can see what it’s like for yourself. Special thanks to Professor Dara and the faculty at Woodcrest for the hospitality!
