Abstract: 
In this paper we present the virtual learning environment "Research Exhibition and <br> Experience Landscape - REEL", which is a platform for communicating scientific projects. REEL <br> allows users to observe and participate in scientific research. We created hands-on experiences in <br> the Virtual World of Second Life, which allow the student to directly step in the field of research <br> and learn in a playful way. REEL showcases the results of the e-Tourism project "Itchy Feet", <br> which provides a 3D e-Tourism environment for providers and consumers that enables versatile <br> interaction between participants including trading of tourism products. REEL explains complex <br> matters in a graspable and understandable way.
