This week we spoke with a local Ottawa college about providing them with a ‘virtual school’ by using various technologies, such as Bluetooth beacons, application programming, digital videos, animation, and Virtual Reality.
Imagine being able to use your mobile phone to find the location of the library on campus, or receive a notification that a book has just come in about a topic you’re interested in. As you pass the local gymnasium, you can use your phone to see the schedule of fitness classes happening that day!
Using Virtual Tours for Student Recruitment
Beyond this, if you have a digital/virtual copy of your school, you can recruit new students by bringing a Virtual Reality headset to a student recruitment opportunity, or simply post it to your website or app so students can view it on their phones or desktops.
