This paper presents information concerning the use of 3D Internet-based multi-user technologies, such as 3D online learning environments, for the creation of cost-effective, massive interactive training sessions and simulations. This approach can provide a cost-effective means to provide large-scale training, using multi-user interaction in situated learning. The availability of relatively low-cost desktop virtual reality systems makes this technology feasible for wider use. Possibilities might include large-scale inter-agency training, simulations of situations not easily presented through live in-person training, and other training and simulations that require repetition and engagement in order to master activities. The University of North Texas is currently using a 3D online learning environment designed by Created Realities Group to enhance online course delivery. This same system can be expanded to provide affordable situational training.
