A virtual world was created in an effort to supplement the study of the novel “The Natural Daughter”. The educational impact of the virtual world experience on college students of English Literature was assessed using concept mapping as a measure of conceptual change. While conceptual change was evident, the origin of the growth was found to be the integrated and scaffolded use of the virtual world within the classroom experience.
