Popis This paper presents an immersive virtual reality environment that can be used to develop collaborative educational applications. Multiple users can collaborate within the virtual shared space and communicate with each other through voice. To asses the feasibility of the collaborative environment a novel case-study concerned the education of a geography was developed and evaluated. The geovisualization experiment scenario explores the possibility of learning geography in a collaborative virtual environment. A user-study with 30 participants was performed. Participants evaluated and commented on the usability and interaction methods used within the virtual environment.
