Abstract: The editors of this eBook have come together to review and edit the works presented at the 2nd Global Conference on Experiential Learning in Virtual Worlds in Prague, Czech Republic. Using utopian paradise and garden party metaphors, the editors hope to bring awareness to readers on the vast opportunities that virtual worlds have to offer for educators. Presentations involved discussions surrounding the software packages used, the implications for its users and the identities of the users themselves. Overall, this eBook has something for everyone - from those exploring virtual worlds for the first time to online residents looking at the implications of current research, this eBook promises to deliver valuable insights on the influence of virtual worlds in the field of education.
