Online Role-Play: Anonymity, Engagement and Risk

Now we can imitate the character or behaviour of someone who is different from ourselves; we communicate with each other through role-play on the internet.  Indeed, online role-playing is an anonymous action.  In Maureen Bell’s journal, he writes: “online role-play may be an effective teaching method for developing understanding and exploring complex issues, and for experiencing and understanding differing views.”  Some people feel comfortable  being anonymous online and having communication with others that the engagement risks may reduce in virtual world; “online environment.”
