How quickly you pick it up will depend on how much experience you have with virtual worlds, online gaming and navigating with a keyboard. Normally it takes a few hours of playing around to master moving around, customizing the way your avatar looks and learning to search for and teleport to the places where you want to be.
When you first log on you will appear on one of the welcome islands, which will be full of helpful hints on getting started, freebies like new clothes and skins, as well as suggestions on how to navigate.
Easy to achieve, little or no techinical skill required. E.g. The ability to use MS office.
Already using e-learning to support teaching and learning, for example you may already have a WebCT course.
Well versed in the use of e-learning technologies. E.g. The ability to create interactive content or use an image manipulation package.
