Abstract

The face-to-face and remote collaborative learning has been successfully used in the educational area. Nowadays, the technological evolution allows the implementation and the improvement of interpersonal communication in networked computer environments, involving chat, audio and video conferencing, but the remote manipulation of objects remains a problem to be solved. However, the virtual reality and augmented reality make possible the manipulation of virtual objects in a way similar to real situations. This paper discusses those subjects and presents a solution for interactions on remote collaborative environments, using conventional resources for the interpersonal communication as well as augmented reality technology.
