In this paper, we present a user-friendly 3D Distributed Virtual
Environment (DVE) that would be used for on-line access to educational multimedia
material over the Internet. We design and develop this application and the
corresponding Graphical User Interface (GUI) in the framework of the European
project “Virtual European School” (VES) whose aim is to develop a comprehensive
resource of teaching material for secondary school education and to provide access
to this material over Internet. It is a web-based application that is being developed as
a client/server architecture using standard protocols and technologies such as
TCP/IP, HTTP, HTML, Java and appropriate 3D formats.
