3D Virtual Tours & 3D Spaces - EdVR.io
Would your School or College Marketing & Admissions benefit from a new way to fully engage, excite, inform and convert ...your prospective parents ...your prospective pupils/students ...your prospective staff ...and your alumni too?
Our EdVR.io Team specialise in creating and delivering fully immersive 3D Virtual Reality Tours & 3D Spaces for the Education sector - not only for Marketing & Admissions but also for Estate Management, Facilities Maintenance & Construction and/or and Lettings & Venue Hire promotion too - created using advanced technology and software and embedded with videos, information, Augmented Reality, 360 images and/or drone footage.
These 3D Virtual Reality Tours & 3D Spaces are much more than the so-called 'virtual tours' created using 360 images. They allow for fully immersive touring through your school or college's buildings and facilities, and are therefore a truly compelling and informative way to engage your prospective parents and students and also others like alumni and prospective staff too, with self-guided ‘game-like’ virtual experiences that can be used in multiple ways:
> On your website for your prospective families (and staff) to view before and after visiting your school or college (helping to ensure they choose you as they make their final decision);
> For you to use during admissions calls with prospective families to give them live, online customised tours;
> On your stand at shows and exhibitions and at other events and gatherings (such as current parent meetings, alumni reunions etc);
> Across your social media to encourage viral sharing and word-of-mouth recommendation as well as earning Likes and Follows etc.
Created in 2020 by isbi (Which Schools Ltd) and OMTAC Ltd, EdVR.io has been working to develop new digital services for Schools, Colleges & Universities using these advancements in virtual reality technology, identifying how the sector can adopt the best practice developed in other areas like property development and sales, construction, renovation and preservation, insurance etc.
