Civil Rights Movement of IUP

INDIANA, Pa.—Graduate students in Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s communications media program have brought the American Civil Rights Movement to life in Second Life, an on-line, digital world. Allen Partridge PhD, a professor of communications media developed the project with students in his Simulation of Games doctoral class. Small groups of students in the 19-member class were charged with coming up with game topic proposals. Following presentations of proposed topics, the class chose “Civil Rights Movement Comes of Age in Second Life.” An overview of the project is available on YouTube at http://bit.ly/faoIxz.
