|Abstract:||iSocial is an innovative 3D Collaborative Virtual Learning Environment (3D CVLE) to provide access to educational programming for students with special needs who live in small and rural school districts. The research reported here is part of a design research process for developing virtual learning systems to improve learning for students with special needs who live in rural/small districts. A field test of iSocial with 11 students shows promise, but also identifies challenges for distance education with 3D collaborative virtual learning.|
