    A proper respect for eventual context of use is crucially important for the success of virtual
    environments destined for real-world organisations, yet is frequently absent from accounts of the
    design of such applications. We describe how contextual requirements have influenced the
    design of a CVE to support the delivery of safety-critical training, and illustrate the use of
    techniques to elicit, consolidate and refine such requirements
