Tour College Campuses on Facebook with YourCampus360

Wellesley College Virtual TourYourCampus360 has launched a virtual tour app that allows you to take a tour of a college campus right from your Facebook account. Although nothing can replace the actual experience of taking a campus tour and meeting some of the students, this app may be able to give you a better glimpse before you make your travel arrangements.

I took a virtual tour of Wellesley College. The tour provides you with a “path view” and a map that shows what part of the campus you are looking at, in addition to information about the college and its facilities. There’s also a digital narrator, who will read you the commentary about each location, however, I found this to be annoying and opted to turn it off. The tour also provides you with links directly to the college’s official website and allows you to schedule a visit. The tour definitely give you a good sense of the layout and architecture of the school.

On dating websites, men and women are empowered, emboldened, and otherwise encouraged to shape the image by which they’ll be perceived in the online dating world at large. With a range of options, the two that really zoom to the forefront are whether to a.) represent themselves as they are in real life, or b.) whether they’d like to create an avatar of sorts, appearing to the world with perfect hair, all the “right” answers, and smiling always. The latter option is sure to generate a greater volume of interested suitors, while the former is more likely to yield potential suitors who might actually stick around after the first half hour of date one.

Colleges Reaching Students Through Every Social Media Angle

Higher education institutions have always been trailblazers of interactivity in marketing. In fact – yes, it’s true – colleges and universities adopted social media (Facebook, Youtube, and Twitter) into their existing marketing plans at an even faster rate than most traditional Fortune 500 and Inc. 500 companies. Marketing to teens, theirs is a perpetually changing landscape. So what’s new on the scene?

It should come as no surprise that these places of learning are filled with great learners, researching, testing and adapting as each new generation’s needs and expectations change. With so many college-bound high school students researching colleges online, from their laptop, their iPad, their smartphone, schools are learning to meet prospective students where they tend to spend most of their time, and integrate this message across platforms. Interactive maps, virtual campus tours, high quality video, and mobile and Facebook applications have become the new hot higher education marketing tools.
But it’s also easy to get too bogged down in the details: whether Android is beating Apple this week; whether teens care about Twitter; which gadgets are giving students online access in a newer, sleeker skin. It’s not that the details are disposable…it’s just that they’re more malleable than you might think.
