Virtual universities and colleges, educational CVEs, place metaphors, characterization framework


In the recent years, the usage of 3D CVEs for educational purposes has increased. The metaphors behind the design of virtual places are quite diverse, from replication of real universities to art museums and scientific labs. The goal of this paper is to provide an extended characterization of place metaphors in educational CVEs. It will serve as a background for an extensive exploration of 3D educational words and corresponding place metaphors versus underlying educational goals.
