Science, particularly that based on large instruments, increasingly involves distributed, global collaborations enabled by the internet and using very large scale data collections, high performance computing resources, tele-science (remote access and control of instrumentation) and collaborative visualisation. For the Australian Synchrotron the Virtual Beam Line will be a model for this sort of distributed access. The VBL is broken into 5 sections: Presentation Areas Online Induction System. The online induction system allows remote users to be inducted via the web. The features of this system include video or slide presentations, a user history of exams undertaken, exams with multiple choice questions, including the capacity for multiple correct answers, picture and/or text questions and answers, automated exam marking, exam timing and user notification of exam results.

In its support and development role the eVBL will deliver a rich client interface screen encompassing basic functions such as motor control, sample/overview video capture, sample analysis, training documentation, client interaction and support requirements. It will also demonstrate that VBL technology is viable.
