Second Year Hebrew in "Second Life"

My friend, Charles Grebe, the creator of and the director of Briercrest College and Seminary's Distance Learning program, will be teaching 2nd year Biblical Hebrew this fall in a "Second Life"-like virtual world hosted by Reaction Grid. The course will be taught live and offered for credit. I'm a big fan of Charles's approach to teaching the language, and I can't think of a better way for those who don't have access to a regular classroom setting to complete a second year of Biblical Hebrew. Check out this article for more information on what the course will be like. There are more pictures of the virtual classroom environment here. The registration deadline is Sept 5.
