Since the 1960s, there has been the development of the virtualization of hardware platforms (systems). This ensured simultaneous access to it for many users and operation systems. Today we can speak of the virtual systems independent from each other, in which virtualization of applications (or processes) takes place. It creates some “abstract environment” making virtualization independent of hardware. Currently a lot of special applications for education are developed. Virtual Reality serves as a learning tool. The current human education can be presented in different formats, which is considered in this work.
Virtual worlds in the formats of virtual learning embody abstract knowledge and concepts, quite specific “material” forms, and expressions. The work by Sánchez et al. (2000) presented this idea sufficiently.
