3D collaborative virtual environments (CVEs) have been widely used for preservation of cultural heritage, also in an educational context. This paper presents a project where 3D CVE is augmented with mobile devices in order to support a collaborative educational exploration of a famous historical site in Norway, where Battle of Stiklestad took place in 1030. This system can be used by both local and distant learning communities, working together towards a common goal. The paper presents a background for the project and a set of requirements for an augmented system, describes the corresponding design and outlines the technical implementation of a hybrid prototype.
