Belonging to a sim that is interested in education, mostly related to the democracy in a virtual world, I thought I would check this thread out.  But it seems very inactive.  I imagine educators or communities with an interest in education find other means of communication.   Or is there a lack of interest?

It used to be more active but many years ago LL dropped support for education (for the most part anyway - a few folks were kept with discounts).  After that many of the schools left. The University of Western Australia was the latest big prescience to leave.  That left a huge void especially for machinima folks and artists.  Since then it HAS been very quiet so it isn't your imagination.  A few schools still have private islands I think but many schools and Universities moved to Opensim and do their stand alone grids there.    

Much has changed over the years, education is just one example :D.  Some things are better, some not so much.

One example that I noticed (shortly after I signed on to SL last April) was when I added Rockcliffe University as one of my group tags. Its Open Sim campus on the Kitely grid is much larger than the one in SL.
