    Abstract

    Over the last five years, the usage of Multi-User Virtual Environment (MUVE), especially Second Life, in e-learning and distance education has experienced significant growth. This project is aimed at developing an e-learning application in Second Life to teach network transmission technology, which is used by Second Life in-world development tool. The e-learning application applies an immersive education methodology to teach packet exchange theory to the first year undergraduate. The virtual classroom developed a slide show, a network transmission simulation, and several quiz boxes. Students can walk through the virtual classroom, experience the work process of a network, and test their learning. The result e-learning application is evaluated and recommendations made for future enhancements.
