This research proposal aims at bridging some of the current trends regarding
Cultural Heritage institution┬┤s usage of Web based technologies. These trends
include the increased use of Social Web principles with respect to traditional
Web presences and the employment of Web3D technologies for single- or
multi-user 3D environments for entertainment and education. Seen individually,
each of these topics has already been covered by a number of different research
projects, but relatively little work has been done on finding ways to elaborate
these approaches by combining them within a common framework. The latter
can also be observed in the practical usage patterns of these technologies, being
usually limited to rather self-contained projects. Therefore, the aim is to provide
a framework for the presentation of cultural heritage artefacts in a 3D virtual
collaborative environment where visitors are able to participate using both
synchronous and asynchronous means of communication.
