We introduce an architecture for constructivist learning that engages students in the task of creating individual exhibitions by drawing from objects in an online collection. This Virtual Gallery framework allows students to create 3-dimensional exhibits that can be publicly shared. To assist educators in creating such environments, we are constructing a special-purpose authoring environment called VG-Maker. We present an exemplar Virtual Gallery application and the VG-Maker tool it inspired.
