Educators are beginning to integrate virtual worlds, which have gained popularity in recent years, into instruction. This curriculum seeks to answer the question: What are the principal elements of research supported learning experiences within virtual learning environments? After review of virtual world platforms a curriculum is constructed making use of principle elements derived from literature on related topics. The author concludes that virtual worlds are best used with constructivist teaching methods, must include exploration as an essential activity, and must utilize social interaction.
