i just started and i am a total newbie, BUT... i gotta disagree with you outlook.
yes corporate educators may have seen SL as a new money fountain,,, but in the long run
it turned into a money pit.
But I feel that SL used as a form of education can be more real than a REAL education.
I purchased a prem membership so as to create a memory palace for my own edification.
and if if these educators acted upon this new style of teaching I think enrollment would have
sky rocketed. BUT sadly i can predicted that they probaly used their own self styled WRIT and ROTE
