Abstract

In this paper we present the virtual learning environment “Research Exhibition and Experience Landscape – REEL”, which is a platform for communicating scientific projects. REEL allows users to observe and participate in scientific research. We created hands-on experiences in the Virtual World of Second Life, which allow the student to directly step in the field of research and learn in a playful way. REEL showcases the results of the e-Tourism project “Itchy Feet”, which provides a 3D e-Tourism environment for providers and consumers that enables versatile interaction between participants including trading of tourism products. REEL explains complex matters in a graspable and understandable way.
