College Recruitment Goes Virtual
Rakitha Perera, graphic designer for the Office of Information Technology (OIT), spent this week on campus helping Ben Richards, the university’s video designer, on a major recruitment project.
The two, in collaboration with the Undergraduate Admissions and New Student Orientation departments, captured photos of campus using the Insta360 Pro camera.
“The images are being used to develop virtual tours for incoming students and prospective students,” said Perera. “I always get excited when I get to the opportunity to try out new technology. Hopefully we can use the camera for future OIT projects.”
For these virtual tours, the team photographed around 40 buildings and close to 120 spots around campus. Each shoot took about 10 minutes per location.
Next, Richards will use the images to create the virtual tours, with Undergraduate Admissions and New Student Orientation using the videos for the fall.
