environments, collaborative learning.
The marketplace for synchronous and asynchronous
services and products is becoming very competitive.
Although there are over fifty providers of e-learning tools

describes the Intelligent Distributed Virtual Training
Environment project (INVITE) which addresses some of

offers a platform for synchronous e-learning, providing
users with the functionality which supports collaborative
learning processes through distributed virtual
environments. It provides groups with opportunities to
immerse themselves in synchronous and distributed work
