With Clickers, every student in class can respond to questions asked by the instructor. This makes it possible for faculty to evaluate student learning and comprehension as content is being presented. There are two main ways instructors use Clickers in the classroom. 1) During a presentation or lecture, and 2) For Self Paced Testing (Clickers can be used instead of scantron sheets).

Second Life is like a 3-D web site expanded into a virtual world. An instructor can create activities and interactive, immersive simulations that are simply impossible in a “regular” classroom. In Second Life students can explore re-creations of real world places, simulations of events in the human body, engage in dialog with people from other countries, and much more while they have the feeling of "being there."
