Acropolis Virtual Tour

Acropolis Virtual Tour | eLearning News | Scoop.it

The Virtual Tour of the Acropolis is an interactive website that allows various aspects of the historical site to be explored in a unique way. It consists of high-resolution gigapixel images and panoramas of the four main monuments - the Parthenon, the Propylaia, the Erechtheion and the Temple of Athena Nike - as well as a detailed photographic representation of the inner and outer ancient walls surrounding the hill, all accompanied by historical information and a descriptive map. The images offer a full zoom in towards details of the moments otherwise difficult to reach, an overview of the location of the monument with respect to its surroundings, or even a virtual "walk" through the site. The user is given the opportunity to exploit task-specific applications or create more personalized approaches, being in overall immersed into a virtual visit of the Acropolis.

This is a useful easy to use tool for creating online magazines with images and video embedded. Not for use by people under 13 years old and they do claim righte to use any images etc that you upload. Still handy for creating a visually pleasing online magazine.

Bookmarking, Curation And Social Discovery App: Everplaces Is Pinterest For Locations

Bookmarking, Curation And Social Discovery App: Everplaces Is Pinterest For Locations | eLearning News | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: Everplaces helps people keep track of places that are relevant and interesting to them, like a personal wish list or to-do list. 

It is a new app that essentially functions as a Pinterest for the real world, a service that lets you save and share snapshots of interesting places via the Web or smartphones.

 

From official website, key features are:

1) CREATE YOUR PERSONAL COLLECTION
Keep a record of all the amazing places you've experienced in your travels or those you'd love to try out one day. Make them personal by adding your own pictures, categories and notes, and we'll turn them into a beautiful, organized and useful collection.

 

2) EXPLORE WHAT OTHER PEOPLE LIKE
You can follow a whole person or only some of their categories, and you can save any place you find directly to your collection.

 

3) EXCHANGE RECOMMENDATIONS WITH FRIENDS
Help your friends find the best spots in cities or countries you know well. You can share any place in your collection by email or SMS and post to Facebook or Twitter.

 

4)KEEP YOUR FAVORITE PLACES IN ONE PLACE
You never know when you discover a great place, so we make it possible for you to save places anywhere - on your mobile, browser or using the Everplaces bookmarklet.

 

5) ACCESS YOUR COLLECTION ANYWHERE
Your Everplaces collection follows you everywhere, so it's at hand on any computer or mobile you use, exactly when you need it. 

 

Check and try out it: https://everplaces.com
