Second Life: Art Conservation in the Virtual World

Second life is a virtual world that enables its users, called residents, to interact with each other through avatars. The University of Delaware has two islands in Second Life and its goal is to promote an interactive form of education for its students. 

One  island has a well-equipped virtual paintings conservation studio where those  interested in art conservation can follow the treatment of a painting and learn about the dynamics of a professional conservation studio.
