Wednesday Web of the Week: WorldWide Telescope

Web Address:

Sometimes you learn about something, here about it a few times and then it falls out of your line of vision and your forget about it, at least that happens to me.  The WorldWide Telescopes is just such a project.  This tool allows users to experience everything from the very simplest and most basic interaction with the night sky to rich immersive planetarium events.  There is a Windows Desktop Client and a rich Web client that allow you to experience and author tours of objects in space.

Through an Ambassadors program the WWT can become even more rich and useful in the classroom. You can find tours,  find out how to get started and get Classroom Resources.

So take a peek at the night sky right from your computer!

Welcome to Jorgie Learning

I really am learning and this blog is maintained both as a record of some of what I am doing as well as a place for me to train and teach others about creating an online presence. So please don't mind the dust. We aren't remodeling we are learning!

Visit some of my other blogs or the other blogs I find mildly entertaining for a more polished feel.
