VR-LAB - A Distributed Multi-User Environment for Educational Purposes and Presentations
Distributed work is becoming a major issue for a large part of the work force and distributed collaborative research has almost become the norm. Consequently, distributed communication facilities play an important role in all future working and education scenarios. Tele-Teaching and Tele-Learning are important new applications for remote data access. Currently mainly focussing on audio-visual communication, TeleEducation has not discovered distributed 3D virtual environments to a large extent. However, we firmly believe that the demand for interactive exploration of distributed 3D databases over the internet and for collaboration within virtual 3D environments will soon become one of he driving forces of future deveopments. This paper presents an architecture, called VR-Lab, which embeds a distributed VRML-System and a remote contollable, distributed presentation environment to support Tele-Learning and education including 3D media.
