Abstract

In the past few years, a network-accessible, multi-user simulated environment known as MUD has becoming widespread on the Internet for purposes of entertainment and education. In this paper, we firstly discuss design issues of collaborative learning in text-based virtual reality environments. We describe our experimental MUD based virtual learning environment, its integration with outside databases and Internet resources, and a graphical user interface to use it. Finally, we introduce our experimental use of this virtual learning environment, experiences from having virtual lessons in it, and some primary evaluation results.
