Google Expeditions (currently unavailable)

Google Expeditions is a virtual reality teaching tool that lets you lead or join immersive virtual trips all over the world — get up close with historical landmarks, dive underwater with sharks, even visit outer space! Built for the classroom and small group use, Google Expeditions allows a teacher acting as a “guide” to lead classroom-sized groups of “explorers” through collections of 360° and 3D images while pointing out interesting sights along the way.

Features:

  • Guide classroom-sized groups of locally connected users from your phone or tablet.
  • Explore along with a guide in immersive VR by putting your phone into a Google Cardboard viewer or use a tablet or phone in 2D “magic window” mode.
  • Connect devices over the same WiFi network - if the Guide has downloaded some Expeditions, there is no internet connectivity required to run the Expedition!
  • Choose from a growing list of over 200 Expeditions - each one is a curated set of VR imagery along with integrated descriptions, talking points and questions.
