Abstract:Organizations are spread across the globe and work together virtually. However, working together through electronic media decreases the richness of the communication, is often perceived as impersonal and building trust can be difficult. While technology advances new possibilities present themselves for cooperative work over distance. One of these possibilities is using 3D virtual environments. Currently little is known about these virtual environments and their possibilities for cooperative work in a business setting. The majority of the existing research on virtual worlds focusses on education and the few papers on virtual environments in a business setting do not provide any scientific evidence why some solutions work and others do not. This research focusses on using a 3D virtual environment for the purpose of business meetings and attempts to reach a high level of usability. From existing literature and experiences of users, the current issues, challenges and best practises are identified. These results are enriched with literature on meetings and working together virtually to create a list with requirements for the system. From these requirements a web-based content management system (CMS) and a virtual environment are created.
