This paper describes the development and comparative evaluation of applying terrestrial based LiDAR point clouds and photos to construct virtual field trips for an online Geodesign methods course. The results show that while virtual reality cannot fully replace immersive real-life experiences, it does have the potential to augment shared experiences in an online class environment, despite the current usability, cost, and hardware barriers.
