Could The Sims be used as an educational tool? The BBC reports that U.S. researcher Ravi Purushotma thinks The Sims environment would be a great tool for teaching languages and do-it-yourself tasks.

Ravi Purushotma said "learning via something like The Sims may mean students do not feel like they are studying at all." Purushotma thinks virtual environments like The Sims could be easily adapted into teaching tools because game players have already created lots of add-on tools for the popular online game.
