The design, implementation and assessment of college-level chemistry experiments conducted in Second Life suggest that VWs can be effective for teaching chemistry laboratory. In this pilot study, 55 students successfully completed two virtual experiments and showed learning gains similar to 67 students who performed identical real world experiments, as shown by pre/post quizzes and a practicum. Students held positive views of their virtual experience; teaching assistants had mixed opinions.
