The MP3 Audio Tour allows students to take a walking tour of the library on their own schedule.  Students download these MP3 files onto their player and then walk around the library, like a museum tour, learning about places and services.  We offered this to the college / major-based Learning Communities because their "common syllabus" is very open, and each instructor  creates their own library-related assignment.  This offers, at the very least, the common experience of walking the library. 
These tours are available in the voice of a librarian, the voice of a student, and several languages (Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, etc.)  The downside is you must keep them up-to-date, even if the original tour guide has graduated!
