Google's newest VR education endeavor is a creative toolkit. Additionally, teachers can embed these tours on their school's website plus later in 2018 Google will add the ability to import the tours into Expeditions, the app for VR field trips.

Released as part of Teacher Appreciation Week in the US, Tour Creator has been created to be simple to use for all age ranges with a drag and drop mechanic.

You can go to g.co/tourcreator to start building your very own virtual tour, maybe of your neighborhood or your community.

Wednesday's big splash at day two of Google's developers conference in Mountain View was a new tool that aims to make virtual reality tours more accessible. Google Expeditions started with VR field trips using Google Cardboard, and expanded previous year to selfie stick-enabled AR experiences, too. During the event, the tech giant had announced a whole lot of new features that it will be releasing for its devices. "Many of them wanted to make them themselves". You do not need any kind of special knowledge in order to create professional-looking VR content by simply using imagery from Google Street View or your own 360 photos.

"It's not just a slideshow", Bavor explained.

The Tour Creator tool is web-based, using a desktop PC browser to create the tour experiences and publish them to Google's 3D content portal, Poly. The 360-degree photos can be annotated, you can create clickable areas, among other things. When inside Poly all users need to do is open a link in a browser or view via a compatible head-mounted display (HMD) like Google Cardboard or Daydream. Tour Creator is designed for VR at the moment, not AR. Both teachers and students have told us that they'd love to have a way to also share their own experiences in VR.
