Tour the World with Berkeley College Online and Georama!
On November 13th, 2015, Berkeley College Online and Georama celebrated National Distance Learning Week with the United States Distance Learning Association with the world’s first LIVE Virtual Field Trip to Barcelona, Spain. Georama's expert tour guide, Monica, lead the adventure, showcasing the architectural marvels of Gaudi, one of Spain's most celebrated and influential artists. During this 1 hour tour, participants had the opportunity to ask the guide questions in real time through Facebook and Twitter. This was a fantastic and authentic way to learn about history, art, architecture, and culture from a distance.
Based on the success of this pilot, Berkeley College Online has partnered with Georama to offer a series of Virtual Field Trips throughout 2016-17. Join us as we explore new cities around the globe each semester! These events are open to all students, staff, faculty, and friends of Berkeley College!

We're also providing you with links to a variety of library and web resources about the countries we are visiting on the sub-pages of this LibGuide.
