7 million people currently play World of Warcraft, an online "roll-playing" fantasy game. Millions more use internet "social networking" as a meaningful-if-virtual aspect of their lives. Games such as Counter-Strike create 1st person persona's in real-time for millions more people.
It's just a matter of time before you can "Log-in" and walk your online "Avatar" to some eClassroom for an interesting, insightful, and interactive eEducational experience which will, for all intensive purposes, be no different, either in assessment or experience, than today's "real-world" classrooms with all their "inter-personal" charms.
I may never personally have opportunity to attend a lecture at Harvard, but I'll bet my student's ADM (state $ for seat-time) that someday soon I will be able to attend an interactive eLecture at an exactly modeled eClassroom at eHarvard from the comfort of my laptop at my neighborhood coffee shop. It's going to be AWESOME!
