Into Group Discussion? Check Out What’s Being Talked About in Second Life this Week.

What are Discussion Groups?
Group discussions are conferences with participants who agree on a variety of topics and have something to share with others.  An exchange of ideas and information can be very helpful in providing a group with different perspectives, helping  solve problems and learn new things.  Group Discussions are very popular on the internet with the use of forums and are often practiced in Colleges.  In Second Life, the ability to use voice chat and come together in avatar form from all over the world, creates a realistic atmosphere for all who participate on a global scale.
Below is a list of discussions available this week.
