Virtual worlds are setting up new standards in software engineering for building virtual learning environments (VLE) today. Open Qwaq, which is based on Open Croquet architecture offers to both programmers and domain experts nearly an unlimited capabilities for creating novel computer-based simulated environments. But, even being built using a highly dynamic, reflective language and self-exploratory Squeak/Smalltalk IDE, it still suffers from tight bindings to client-server architecture, platform dependence and third-party tools. That leads to unnecessary inflexibility to develop or deploy new or existing virtual worlds on heterogeneous ad hoc networks. The article describes efforts being done for bringing Open Croquet/OpenQwaq SDK more closer to a mobile VLE development platform. Krestianstvo SDK is proposed as a one-click application, for instantly setting up a VLE in classroom's network, ART installation, educational disc and similar environments with support of augmented reality and collaborative tangible user interfaces.
