Virtual Tour Gives an In-Depth Look at RU
With increased attention on non-resident and international recruitment and outreach, Radford University has worked with a vendor to develop a new, robust virtual tour. The tour rolled out the week of May 26 and can be found at http://virtualtour.radford.edu.
The tour allows prospective students to "visit campus" from a remote location using a desktop computer or an Internet-enabled mobile device.
The virtual campus visit includes the ability to see campus buildings inside and out, hear testimonials from students and faculty and experience interactive features that provide a sense of being on campus without actually traveling to Radford. The content management system used to host the tour allows Radford University to add additional multimedia to the tour on an ad hoc basis.
The tour rolled out with 21 guided stops plus supplemental multimedia to enhance the experience.
