Benefits of VR Campus Tours
Colleges often post pictures and videos of digital campus tours (think Google Maps Street View) to give prospective students and their parents an idea of what the campus looks like. Students unable to travel the distance for financial reasons can take advantage of virtual college tours to get a feel for what a campus has to offer. On a virtual visit, you will not only see different parts of campus such as academic and recreational facilities but will also learn from virtual guides and current students, making each resource unique to their school and the one you have.
If you are interested in learning more about a college in another side of the country but do not have time, resources or money to travel for a traditional visit, virtual tours can be a good alternative.
Even if they are unable to visit campus facilities in person, students can try out an ever-growing range of virtual tours of schools, colleges, and universities. These tours range from luxurious virtual reality experiences to video slideshows and are facilitated by companies that specialize in certain digital skills. As the coronavirus prevents travel and campus visits, more and more students are turning to Web sites that permit them to e-visit to get a sense of what the school has to offer.
Students taking part in campus tours may not always be possible, but thanks to new technologies you can get involved and capture the interest of these students. The implementation of 3D virtual tours at colleges and universities can reach students on the other side of the country and make universities accessible to more students. Rural students can attend larger universities in major cities, international students can get a better idea of what is possible for them abroad, and virtual tours for prospective students provide visualization opportunities.
For example, if your institution plans to create a new wing or building for a specific school on your campus, you can use a simulated virtual tour to capture the interest of donors. More than 6 million people take part in virtual tours on any given day, meaning that Internet users yearn for the immersive experience that tours offer.
Travel expenses such as food and gas can be expensive, especially for families attending multiple colleges. Airfares, multiple nights in hotels, and long distances for domestic families and international students, as well as college visits, can be expensive, especially in the first semester, especially with tuition fees. For prospective students who live outside the state, they need a compelling reason to book plane or bus tickets with the locals, and many students abstain from campus visits because they are too busy studying or doing research at a college to engage in social activities.
