Seniors from Care Link in Arkansas begin exploration of Second Life

Seniors Second Life

This is a view of the first cohort of subjects in a University of Arkansas research study as they enter a virtual world for the first time. Their activities will be tracked as they explore Second Life for seven weeks with the help of eXtension’s Virtual 3D experts. The study is looking at how social activity in virtual reality affects well-being in seniors. The home base of the project is on eXtension’s Morrill2 region.
