Yes, but who is actually teaching in SL?

Sylvia has some excellent insights into the world of Second Life. I have been growing sceptical regarding its potential for online teaching and learning. It is certainly an immersive and captivating environment but I question its ability to be used to actually deliver lessons to students. I’ve found myself several times over the past few months asking the question, “Who is actually teaching a course in SL?” …and the big guns from SLED have no idea. There are a lot of educators going around talking about it, but very few actually doing it. So, here is an informal poll — are you teaching an actual course in SL? Please leave a comment if you are.
