Our web 3D work & Second Life activity

The Web 3D and Virtual World Lab undertakes research and development activities in the area of Web 3D applications. Approaches are currently focused on the use of Web 3D as a knowledge exchange and learning and teaching medium, its application for heritage visualisation and digital interpretation, the potential for Web 3D applications to support digital inclusion of older socially

isolated people alongside its innovative application in the low carbon economy. The Institute has successfully been collaborating in this field across sectors with local and national partners, peer Institutes and Universities; and research funding bodies (National and European).
