Can Virtual Campus Tours Make In-Person Tours More Effective?
Campus tours have always been an integral part of student recruitment for Universities, Colleges and Independent schools. And virtual campus tours are an important way to create interest in a physical campus tour, as well as to get students interested in student life and academic programs.
Pros from Salve Regina University are using CampusBird’s integrated virtual tour builder to enhance the value of their in-person campus tour.
Salve Regina offers four virtual tours built and presented with the CampusBird platform: the traditional admissions tour, a residence hall tour, and a unique walking tour which shows off all of the beautiful trees on campus, and a virtual tour of campus-wide art installations.
Creating multiple tours helps engage multiple audiences and offers a more interactive and immersive virtual experience. The CampusBird platform makes it easy for clients to create unlimited amounts of virtual tours (in addition to other multimedia).
In just one month, Salve Regina University had over 700 unique virtual tour visits. Six hundred of those were visits to the the residence hall tour – a clear indicator of just how important it is to give prospective students as much information as possible about their future homes.
1 Month = 700 virtual tour visits
86% of those visits were to Salve Regina’s residence hall tour
CampusBird has hundreds of clients who depend on the platform to build, manage and promote virtual campus tours. In a month, these virtual tours generated roughly 20,o0o views.
If a picture is worth 1,000 words, virtual campus tours must be worth 10,000.
