ABSTRACT
Many existing information security exercises only focus on the technical aspect of security and lack a meaningful context. These conventional teaching strategies have their role, but the authors believe that educating a future generation of security professionals demands a more student-centered and contextualized pedagogical approach that could prepare students for the highly dynamic world of information security. To meet these challenges, they developed a novel security education environment that improves student engagement and learning efficacy by using Second Life, a popular 3D, Web-based virtual social world.
