Some of the processes associated with running an academic institution successfully have to do with drawing in more prospective students or parents of those students. And while one-on-one impersonal tours can certainly be very effective, there are only so many benefits you can offer to prospective customers who are physically present on your campus.
Today, nearly all colleges, schools and universities have a dynamic online presence which they must maintain in order to stay competitive. In fact, active social media channels and highly interactive websites have become a mainstay, which is particularly helpful to prospective students looking to join the academic institution from another city or country altogether.
When it comes to ‘enriching’ your online presence, virtual campus walkthroughs are an undeniably valuable tool which you can integrate with your website to offer prospective students a unique campus experience before they join.
Just two years ago, a report revealed that well over 60,000 people used virtual campus tours to check out their desired university or school before making the decision to enrol in that respective institution.
