This paper presents an analysis of pairs of users interacting in a Complex Collaborative Virtual Environment (CVE). The analysis highlights behaviours that are caused by the simple virtual structures the CVE provides. This paper also derive design issues to be considered when defining the structure of a shared virtual world.

Intended Audience

Researchers, Teachers/Educators

This paper is a little technical oriented from the perspective of educational research. It talks about the effects of different VE rendering strategies on the interaction of users of VEs. Its target readers should be the designers (programmers) of virtual environments. One thing that educational researchers can learn from this paper is that the design of learning environment, especially the information (or knowledge) presentation strategies, can affect how students learn.
