This session will demonstrate examples of simulations that use a mixture of web technologies, social networking and virtual worlds. In particular we will discuss in detail a simulation that enables groups of law students to work as partners in simulated law practices in a virtual town that supports a range of casework.

We will also showcase an accident investigation simulation built in the virtual world Second Life where groups of students can experience an accident scenario, investigate it, design safe systems of work to deal with the case and work collaboratively on accident analysis and prevention.
