Some of our teams are parents and have booked onto Virtual Open Days with their children and have not been greatly impressed by a series of pre recording youtube videos and student testimonials and flat 360 photography that is not user friendly on a desktop. Often the Virtual Open Day page has several calls to action and are are confusing and there are so many options to click you might not return back to the open day page. It is hard to re create a physical open day where you have many human reactions and all of your senses are influenced but a virtual video tour of a typical open day helps to bring this to life and be more memorable.
VR360 video will help to revolutionise the way Universities communicate with the world in the post covid world we are living in. Specific VR360 tours can be selected based on courses or departments that can be filmed with the lecturers who will be taking the course creating bespoke experiences for each student.
