Sarah Robbins, a.k.a. Intellagirl, is gearing up
to teach her English 104 course online, in the world of Second Life
. The Ball State University professor will
guide 18 students through the core-curriculum class by encouraging them to explore a virtual island campus, which
Robbins designed. But slackers hoping for that easy 'A' will be in for a surprise. "It's probably going to be
harder than any other 104," says Robbins, adding, "but it may be more fun."
