Melissa Fischer Louvre in Paris For the virtual museum tour assignment, I decided to take a virtual tour of the Louvre in Paris. I had traveled there a couple years ago and really enjoyed it, so I thought I'd like to see how the virtual tour compared with the real tour. In comparison, the tour was very good!

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
