    Abstract

    Recent advances in desktop computer graphics hardware and associated software have made 3D environments feasible for mainstream educational use. This paper examines the potential applications of 3D environments in tertiary education. Characteristics of a 3D Virtual Chemistry Laboratory currently under development are described in order to illustrate the ideas discussed. The paper concludes by identifying key research questions that need to be addressed.
