TerraNova has an interview with a Boston College professor who teaches in virtual worlds. He calls it immersive education. The Prof (Aaron Walsh) says:
As Immersive Education and other forms of personal virtual reality become more realistic and compelling we're going to see "immersive illness" become more common and more difficult to deal with.and
It's also worth noting that the "fun" factor can't be denied. Most of the students I've spoken with about their experience with these classes say they're the most fun they've had, and that they look forward to being in virtual reality each week.
