Research focused on building e-learning paths on the teaching Earth sciences using MUVE (Multiuser Virtual Environment) as a new perspective in education will be presented. A 3D virtual island has been created using OpenSim in which students (13-18 years old and university students) in a role-playing game (serious game) must pass ability and expertise steps/tests, solving various questions placed on their path and acquire scientific skills.
