Innovating the Campus Tour with Mobile Apps

Not all prospective students want or are able to take a guided tour of campus, but without an alternative, many students visit on their own, and are walking away with unanswered questions and no communication from the college or university.

Attend this web seminar to learn how the University of Washington tackled this issue by leveraging mobile technology to bring the campus tour straight to prospective students' smartphones, providing a self-guided campus tour app that allows students to tour campus on their own time, and at their own pace.

During this live session you’ll learn:

  • Overcoming the inefficiencies associated with the traditional
    campus tour program

  • How to differentiate your institution from competing universities
    for prospective students

  • Identifying and connecting with “stealth” applicants
