ABSTRACT
Conventional education in applied science relies on both theoretical studies and handson- experiments while virtual education conveys theoretical information via enhanced visual aid. Visual information can be provided via dynamic web sites broadcasting from both existing laboratories and visual tours of imaginary collections. An example for the fast growing e-museum projects has been proposed and the data warehouse model has been recommended to save the information in the presented example. The linking model is employed for the presentation of objects. The model is able to use an auditing classification between content finding and data fields. The freeof-charge web application has been used to track the visitor activities. Although, both proposed project and its model have been used for creating an emuseum, it can easily be adopted to any learning environment which provides visual
educational support to any science.
