Home page, actually a guide-post, offers interactive list of faculties (or buildings) the virtual guides are at disposal for and the city plan with markers (pins) on the place where the buildings are situated. For making choice you can use the both tools — the list, the map only or the combination of both.
From the home page, after you choose the building you are interested in (whatever way for making choice you use) you will be redirected into the virtual guide application.
