Every school has its specialization or the aspects of the school that have made it the top school to attend for that particular feature. Understanding what the best features of your school are is essential to being able to design a 3D Virtual Campus Tour that focuses in on these attributes. For many schools it will be the various academic programs, the sports programs, the technology or the faculty. For other schools it will be their rich history, school culture and their tradition of producing excellent graduates.
The old saying about things that are tried and true being the best couldn't be more inaccurate when it comes to attracting prospective students to a college or university. You don't need any proof of that, as your own enrollment and recruitment data will prove that fact. Using traditional methods to attract new students, including the more technology-based options such as guided videos and online photo galleries, simply cannot always capture and hold a student's attention long enough to provide them with the information they need to seriously consider your campus.
All colleges and universities face an increasing problem with a decrease in enrollment in programs at undergraduate and graduate levels. The reason for this decline may be partially based on the economy and partially due to the increased number of online degree programs available. Smaller colleges and universities also face problems with being able to compete in recruiting programs with larger universities and schools with significant budgets and a larger number of admissions and recruiting staff.
If you’ve visited our website lately you’ve probably noticed the big blue digital ribbon at the top of our Home Page. It’s for our First Place win in Familiarization category in the Federal Virtual Worlds Challenge, for the exciting 3D campus tour we created for the United States Air Force Academy.
With each new advancement in technology and access to information on the web the possibilities for expanding recruitment and access to a campus increases. In fact, the 3D Virtual Campus Tours developed by Designing Digitally, Inc. are fully compatible with all web browsers on the market today along with Android devices. Of course the virtual campus is also accessible by PCs and Macs making our 3D tours the most accessible anywhere.
We've edited the body theme so it's actually a template, rather than a whole html page.
