Three-dimensional virtual learning environments provide students with pedagogic experiences beyond traditional two-dimensional textbook and Web page content. When delivered via the World Wide Web, this technology is known as Web3D. Such immersive learning experiences are available to a wider audience of student and when coupled with existing 2D content make effective learning applications. In this chapter a method for delivering a 2D/3D hybrid Web page will be demonstrated, which illustrates a best of both worlds approach to including both traditional text-based content and 3D simulated environments in an e-Learning context.
