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 27 2013: You are ingenious,and a virtual classroom must be wondering.However,I have some other ideas.

    The class is,definitely, exiting to almost every student to be or being there studying during a long time.
    After a long time,yet,those students will be tire about it.
    You can see it from ourselves.We're interested in everything around us when a little boy and lost interests when an adult.

    What if this long time(may be a half year or a year or more) is end to them?
    You may find another better classroom(may be harder and harder), while what should you do after that?

    Our life around us is ,actually,more extraordinarily good than we see them.
    We are so busy(either for ourselves or other reasons) to lost our original dream and our favorite things.
    As a result boring things wrapped us tightly,in fact,the same saying,we wrapped us with worse feelings.
    We refused fantastic things when we know that or not,reluctantly or not ,for making money and power.

    For that, we have ability to discover exiting life if we run slowly,and to enjoy fancy life.Jogging is OK.
    So,our now classroom is also exiting,which should not be removed too fast.We can achive a lot of positive results from "ordinary" classroom.
