How about a VIRTUAL classroom?

What do you imagine as the perfect classroom?
Me and my students were wondering ...
Is it big and full of light?
Is it in the middle of the jungle?
Are there many books in it?
Is there music in it?
What about a VIRTUAL classroom where you study in a virtual environment as if in a video game? Can we learn more from the virtual world than we actually think? Please, share some ideas and opinions ...

      Jan 21 2013: Well, I imagined the classroom like... the students to see each-other and talk to each-other. And do you think that talking about Justin Bieber in class is social?

      I think that Radi is right, because I imagined the classroom like that!

      I imagine the classroom more like this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSmOvYzSeaQ
      but ... I also see it as a website with various teaching material and online live chat, so I guess that will make it a bit more socialble.
