FGCU Global Virtual Content

Bring your classroom to the world,
and the world to your class

All FGCU faculty, staff and students now have access to take virtual educational adventures around the world with this exciting new learning tool developed by the Study Abroad Association.  Have you ever wished you could travel to Costa Rica, England, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Italy, and Switzerland? As a response to the pandemic and limited opportunities for international travel, FGCU's Office of Global Initiatives is excited to offer you the opportunity to go abroad virtually. As an instructor, you can use the FGCU Global Virtual Content to enhance curricular activities and assignments to add a global dimension to your courses.   

The materials include over 60 hours of interactive content split between 4 areas of study: Humanities, Sciences, Business, and Global Perspectives. Each scene or “virtual tour” is complete with: 

  • 360 degree photos
  • text boxes with fact and figures
  • time warp videos to set the context
  • 360 videos where you can move the cursor to get a surround view
  • captioned videos with educators and interviews with experts
  • drone footage to get a bird’s eye view
  • quiz options
  • external links for further exploration
