A software architecture that facilitates interactive multiplayer simulations, intelligent software tutors, and immersive virtual environments is presented. The implementation employs a hybrid selection of techniques mainly related to a "restful'' server strategy. The paper concludes with an implementation of the software architecture: Virtual Cell, a three-dimensional environment for teaching the processes and structures of Cellular Biology.
