From CampusBird Blog
Pokémon Go – the popular augmented reality game from Nintendo that’s sweeping the U.S. (and soon the world), has caught the eye of several creative professionals at institutions using the CampusBird Interactive Map and Virtual Tour platform. These colleges tap Pokémon Go to gamify campus exploration, and create a fun reason for students to use their interactive campus map.
Pokémon Go Guilford
The team first got wind of the Pokémon Go + CampusBird activity from the following Tweet from Guilford College. And (as map/tech geeks do), we had to explore further.
Guilford College is already crushing it with a host of virtual tours: sustainability tour, disc golf course tour, athletics facilities tour, dining options tour, admissions tour and a Center for Continuing Education tour. Woah! So they went ahead and used the CampusBird virtual tour builder to add another super cool tour with Pokéstops and gyms.
Pokemon Madness at Maryville
It was a regular old Friday, when all of a sudden our social media channels LIT UP.
Maryville College (which holds some good court in the social media realm, BTW) had updated their CampusBird with an interactive category to profile the various PokéStops and Gym locations on their campus.
Just Pokéclick that Pokécheckbox, and off you Pokémon Go
