This article presents a study about suitable architectures to
support virtual environment distribution in
multidisciplinary learning projects. Different distribution
platforms have been evaluated, through parameters such
as scalability and latency, in order to identify the most
efficient one in supporting real time distribution. The
photosynthesis phenomenon has been chosen as a case
study. Results of undertaken experiments show a good
performance of the proposed architecture.
