The Virtual Coach is a web-centric virtual environment that creates temporally dynamic clinical exercises known as situational simulations, with the intention of exposing participants to rapidly unfolding events and the pressure of decision-making. This paper deals with the temporal nature of the databases, which store all the data relevant to situational simulations executed by the Virtual Coach. The first part of the paper describes situational simulations and the relevance of distributed
