Distance learning such as TV-based learning, Internet learning, etc. has become popular in these days. In particular, distance learning on Internet is a promising approach to decrease the geographical barrier of education and to provide a personalized learning framework. However, such distance learning has a problem that participants of the distance learning can not acquire the feeling of "reality", or realistic atmosphere of learning, though multi-modal information, or visual and audio information is transferred between learning sites. To solve the problem, or to provide more realistic learning environment for distance learning, we are researching for a virtual environment for distance learning with high reality. Particularly, in this research, we are aiming at construction of a virtual class room, which a teacher and geographically scattered students can attend via the network.
