Urban Academics has a website which has both subscriber and non-subscriber web access points. Subscribers have a choice to pay monthly or one-time only fees. Non-subscribers may have access through established partnerships or other pre-existing private organizational privileges. Website access is centralized. Patrons enter site associated with their subscription status. Subscribers are sent directly to a page which offers options in viewing format such as flat (standard), 2D or 3D virtual environment.

At this initial entry point other pertinent information associated with system requirements, best-viewed information, help, “how-to-use” icons and links to downloadable free viewers for the virtual spaces are present. The optimal high-end 3D settings place users within a virtual world to navigate in an Atrium-like setting with the use of previously chosen avatars (graphic representation of self). Visitors to these virtual environments who do not come in with their own avatar will automatically be assigned one as a default with options for changing to another whenever desired to do so. Chat can be enabled and done either in 2D or 3D.

The Atrium is place where the users/visitors gather either to peruse the Informational Quads or to socialize for the purposes of exchanging ideas and building partnerships. At least 10 simultaneous visitors can be viewed and chat with each other. Informational Quads are areas where all the information is grouped by general subject areas. Avatars (visitors) can make their selections either by touching or colliding into these areas represented as rotating spheres. These subject areas, appropriately labeled, such as Education, Business, History, Science, Math, Medicine, and Social Services (includes community resources) are the same materials used in other viewed options, but just navigated differently. Most are connected to space with hyperlinks to the same areas (websites, text-based documents) selected by clients who chose not to use the virtual spaces-3D.
