Abstract

This research proposes a design framework of a virtual worldbased learning environment that integrates unique features of the virtual world technology with an instructional strategy. We then demonstrate the environment's usefulness and assess the effectiveness of our design framework in the context of information security learning using Second Life. Overall, the results strongly suggest that the virtual world-based learning environment enhances information security learning. In addition, our research shows that Learner traits have an important influence on learning outcomes through perceived enjoyment.
