University replicates in Second Life. Lazy students rejoice.

Ok, it’s not strictly news about startups, but it’s still interesting that Sussex University has built a replica of its campus in Second Life. Students can now fly around to visit the Library or attend online seminars inside the replica. Let’s hope their avatars don’t fall asleep in the lecture. At least they now need never leave their college room at all. But I’m sure it’ll be great for visiting foreign students (no air travel required) and other ‘virtual’ events.
