Yale School of the Environment Leverages 360° Tour
360-Degree Virtual Tour Offers Immersive Experience into Facilities, Grounds, Architecture and Program Offerings
Announcing that the Yale School of the Environment (YSE) is the latest higher education institution to select the company’s 360 Tour system to offer virtual tours. The 10-stop YSE tour includes detailed information about each location, and the 360-degree panoramic images provide a feeling of being on location, looking around and moving in and around each stop on the virtual tour.
“The 360° Tour provides everyone with the opportunity to explore YSE’s beautiful campus, academic buildings, classrooms, laboratories, and more. It is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and doesn’t require an appointment!,” said Wendi Hicks, Director of Enrollment Management, Yale School of the Environment.
YSE uses hotspots throughout the tour stops to provide additional context and imagery. The VR-enabled tour is best viewed with a virtual reality headset, creating a seamless, lifelike experience as the user explores each stop on the tour. The 360 Tour software also offers audio narration and integrated, expandable mini-map orients the visitor to each tour location in the broader area.
“The Yale School of the Environment really comes to life online with our 360 Tour system,” said Concept3D CEO, Gordon Boyes. “We know immersive, visual media appeals to students and parents alike, and the integrated buttons to request more information about admissions, degree offerings and other needs make it incredibly easy for prospective students to get what they need and feel like they are on campus.”
