What do you think of when you think of MIT?

It may not necessarily be history that comes to mind first. But, there’s quite a bit of it on the Cambridge campus.

In fact, the campus opened one hundred years ago in 1916 when MIT relocated from Boston’s Back Bay.

A Virtual Campus Stroll

A recent Whitepoint scape highlights aspects of the campus’ eastside on the occasion of the Cambridge centennial. From Killian Court and the Walker Memorial to the striking Stata Center, images and rich text content walk virtual tourists through the venerable campus.

What really sets this scape apart is the inclusion of widget links to additional photos hosted on Google as well as Vimeo videos. So, not only do visitors get the colorful textual content, they can access relevant multimedia content to enrich the context and their understanding. There really are some interesting aspects to the MIT story that would otherwise be overlooked.

Another Whitepoint Featured Scape

We congratulate everyone involved in the centennial celebration at MIT and are proud to present “100 Years of the East Side” as a featured Whitepoint scape.

As with any Whitepoint scape, the tour is available to anyone on the free Whitepoint app available for both Android and Apple iOS. Just download and search “MIT.”

And of course any school, community, or historical district can offer a smarter tour for their visitors and virtual tourists too – just visit Whitepoint to learn more.
