Edison offers virtual tour

Staff report

PIQUA — To remain on the cutting edge of technology, Edison State Community College now offers a virtual tour of the campus.

The recently launched YouVisit virtual tour takes users in and around the Piqua campus, online.

As participants follow the arrows through campus, an on-screen guide explains the various functions and features of 15 areas. While touring, users can view 360-degree images, videos and photographs to gain an in-depth look at the Edison State campus.

“Virtual tours are becoming increasingly popular among colleges and universities and have proven to provide an excellent visual representation of an institution’s ethos,” said Bruce McKenzie, director of marketing at Edison State. “These types of tours give the viewer interactive control to become immersed in every detail of our college and campus grounds.”

The virtual tour may be viewed on any desktop or mobile device with an Internet connection. For an even more engaging option, Virtual Reality (VR) headsets can also be used while touring. Users can download and install the free YouVisit app to begin the tour.

“We want the communities we serve to gain a better understanding of all that we have to offer and this seems to be the most advanced, effective and accessible method of delivery available today,” added McKenzie.
