During the BSc course at Royal Holloway, the Information Systems Theory and Practice module team conducted a virtual training project which triggered the interest in this aspect of technology. The project involved conducting research into the potential virtual training market by conducting different surveys.

It will increase the flow of communication which will result in more sharing of knowledge. The motivation to investigate this field is not only based on the reason that this could be the future for all most all organisations but also on the very interesting topic of human computer interaction.
Another motivation to conduct this research is to help to reduce the carbon
