e-Learning Systems in Virtual Environment
E-learning is one of the emerging needs of the information age. Therefore a lot of potential is seen in distance learning development. Virtual environment interface to e-learning systems have recently appeared on the Internet. Using virtual reality environment, the applications appear to be promising to e-learning tasks more nature and interactive. Also using this technology, it is possible to get a sense of three dimensional environments and level of user immersion. Extensible 3D (X3D) is the most common tool for building 3D viewing and browsing of e-learning systems. In this paper the benefits of virtual reality environment using X3D in e-learning applications are demonstrated. Those will be shown via implementing two web enabled virtual environment e-learning systems.
