Virtual Campus Tours has been an item on our team's todo list since we started the list, and I am requesting feedback from members of the uwebd community that have completed such a project for a university. It is my intention to use these responses to answer some of the open questions with this todo item.

Please provide feedback on the following questions:

  1. Does your university have a virtual campus tour?
  2. If so, can you provide a link to the tour?
  3. Did you use an external vendor to create the virtual campus tour?
  4. If so, may you share the name of the external vendor?
  5. Does your virtual campus tour support mobile devices?
  6. If so,
    • How much mobile traffic does the tour receive?
    • Does the display of the tour change for the mobile device?
  7. Any feedback, suggestions, lessons learned from releasing and maintaining a virtual campus tour?

 

Thank you for taking the time to read, and hopefully reply to this discussion topic.

<vendor>Riley, happy to talk, in a non-salesy way, about anything you want regarding virtual tours. You can drop us a line at nucloud.com, or email me directly at michael@nucloud.com. I've looked at a ton of schools and how they go about it, and can probably give you some insight from vendor platforms, to Google, to device compatibility, etc.</vendor>

We may take you up on that offer.

CampusTours.com produces content-managed virtual campus tours and interactive campus maps that work on computers, mobile devices and even kiosks and touchscreens.  To learn more about virtual tours, please visit http://www.CampusTours.com.  

Here is a link to our virtual tour. It was created in-house.
