Expeditions FAQ

Below are some common questions that teachers, students, and administrators might have about Google Expeditions.

Is Google Expeditions just for teachers?

Google Expeditions is available to anyone to download and install. Expeditions can be group experiences with a guide leading and explorers following along, which are especially useful to educators for taking students on virtual educational journeys. However, you can also go on an expedition by yourself

Can I create an expedition?

Google works with partners, such as the Royal Collection Trust, Wildlife Conservation Society, and American Museum of Natural History, to create educational content. If you’d like to make a new expedition, let us know.

What's a peer-to-peer network?

A Wi-Fi network allows devices connected to the network to communicate with the Internet. However, a Wi-Fi network can also allow peer-to-peer communication. This allows individual devices on the network to communicate with each other without Internet access.

You need an Internet connection to download the Expeditions app and individual expeditions. However, you can run an expedition using only peer-to-peer communication.

Check with your organization’s IT administrator to see if your Wi-Fi network is enabled for peer-to-peer networking. If it isn't, you can use a standalone router or run a hotspot from a phone.

Is the Pioneer Program running?

Just like we did with Expeditions VR, we will be bringing AR to schools to experience through the Expeditions AR Pioneer Program this fall. Schools can sign up for the Pioneer Program here
