Oh it could be language acquisition hardcore both ways direct instruction and through immersion in the environment. And you could easy peasy write those objectives and eval descriptions. How cool would it be to finally be able to include people who don't use language the same way and do it without stigma?
I read that Second Life was going to start an ESL school. You know that puppy's going to fly. ESL and other languages including computer ones can be taught and practiced (and mastered). That is killer content! (And likely a voluntary prerequisite for other learning projects.)
The content of the "learning community" can be almost anything, just has to have some articulated objectives and work to connect learners using teh tubes and whatnot.
Just need the place.
