Virtual tours are a simple, yet effective means to provide rich learning experiences for students and pupils. Explore the National Gallery of Ireland, The Louvre, The Cliffs of Moher (without getting wet!), step into the Sistine Chapel and gaze at Michelangelo's legendary frescos in the Vatican and even look out for Bród (the president's dog) in Áras an Uachtaráin. Students/pupils can move through exhibits at their own pace. Viewers can control the video by scrolling to look in different directions and from different angles which can prove to be highly effective for visual learners.
