TOY, “The future learning environment”,  is a virtual 3D game-like learning environment designed for Finnish shools, from comprehensive schools to colleges . The environment is a formable 3D space where users are represented by avatars, their virtual identities.

TOY caters to game-like learning. This way the learning process is based on experiences and it becomes more engaging and efficient than the process based on any traditional learning methods in Finnish school -system.

In the future, the environment will also support evaluation by indicating what the user is interested in, what exercises he/she has completed, and how the user perceives him/herself and is perceived by other users.
