I’ve previously shared a lot about Google Expeditions, the virtual reality “field trip” tool (see The Best Resources For Finding And Creating Virtual Field Trips and and A Beginning List Of The Best Resources On Virtual Reality In Education).

It’s call Tour Creator, and looks very cool.

You can read more about it at Google and watch the video below:
