1. What is Second Life?

Second Life logo

Second Life is a 3D world that is free to use at its most basic level. You can find information on Second Life at http://www.secondlife.com/. To get started you need to register on the site and create an 'avatar'. Your avatar is simply the computer-generated person or identity you use in the 3D world. You also need to download some software to your machine which will allow you to enter the Second Life world (available for Windows, Mac, and Linux). You do this when you register.
