USD Campus Featured in Google Project
Google announced its Expeditions program earlier this year and First Lady Michelle Obama made it part of her Reach Higher initiative. Through Expeditions, teachers may request free kits that use virtual reality technology to show students more than 200 places around the world, including museums, coral reefs, unique job shadows and even outer space.
Google is also working with colleges and universities worldwide to create a collection of Expeditions so students can tour campuses and get an immersive feel for each. USD will be one of the featured universities.
The 360-degree images of the Vermillion campus, captured by USD’s marketing team in collaboration with the Google Expeditions team, can be viewed at usd.edu/360. Points of interest include Old Main, Aalfs Auditorium, the DakotaDome, the new basketball and volleyball arena, new soccer and track complex, and other locations around campus.
The tour will be part of the Expeditions app, which will be available on Android and iOS devices later this year.
