This paper focuses on two case studies conducted in a Virtual Campus of Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). In these case studies the Virtual Campus acted as a venue for guest lectures and as a place for collaborative 3D educational visualizations and cross-cultural interaction. The data collected during the studies is analyzed to explore the technological, social and other issues using virtual worlds in educational settings, focusing on visualization of educational content. The paper concludes with some recommendations for future development of the Virtual Campus.
