Abstract : We discuss the effects of using distributed virtual reality environments in the educational process. Pedagogical, technical and implementation aspects are explored in conjunction with a virtual environment used in the engineering training curricula. Knowledge exchange occurs in the process of social interaction. The complexity of the actual knowledge we are trying to assimilate makes us active parts in an educational environment. Searching, discovering and testing, are the most frequent human activities in such environments. When an abstraction level of knowledge is reached, these activities are completed and creational acts may appear as complement to learning, with a constructive feedback as one of the side-effects. In the following sections we will emphasize the contribution of distributed virtual environments to the learning process in order to transform it into an effective and evolutionary one.
