CVL Education network
The CVL Education Network is a spreadsheet that helps learners, educators and collaborators navigate a wide variety of virtual landscapes. It shows WHO is in WHAT world and WHEN!
To be added to the network, contact Valerie Hill (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Becky Adams (email@example.com).
Virtual Worlds Education Consortium
The goal of the Virtual Worlds Education Consortium (VWEC) is to bring educators together both to share what has been successful and to tackle obstacles across virtual platforms and communities. Through meeting quarterly, educational communities can collaborate and document progress on best practices for teaching and learning in virtual environments.
In addition to CVL, VWEC also collaborates with the Rockliffe University Consortium, the Nonprofit Commons in Second Life, and Madori Linden (Product Specialist, Land Operations, Linden Lab) to best serve virtual world educators.
Where: Community Virtual Library Main Branch in Second Life (SLURL: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Cookie/191/210/21)

As the educational community has continued to thrive in Virtual Worlds, likely supported by recent events, it keeps coming up that coordinating efforts might be beneficial to all in the educational community. For this reason, we are reaching out to our educational communities to see if you are interested in joining together with educators of Second Life, and other VWs, periodically to look at common large-scale issues together, to promote communication and support for educational efforts across educational groups and others involved in the design and implementation of educational programs in virtual venues.Dr. becky adams, educator & CVL volunteer, 2020
