In this article we describe the results of a survey, where the experiences of university level forestry students on using virtual learning tools in forestry education were gathered. The questions concerned a PuMe simulator developed for forestry studies in Finland and virtual learning tools in general. The aim of the study was to find out which are the advantages, disadvantages and needs for development of such tools from the viewpoint of the students. Also the possible differences in attitudes of students coming from different cultures were examined. Student opinions were collected in forest management courses during 2004-2005 in Finland, Sweden and Russia. There were students from a total of 24 countries worldwide.
