LAUNCH THE COLLEGE OF SAINT BENEDICT/SAINT JOHN'S UNIVERSITY VIRTUAL TOUR
CampusTours Project Details
- NEW FEATURE! Bookmark Any Tour State
By pressing the Control and Home keys (CTRL + HOME) simultaneously at any point in the tour, users can create a bookmark string that will return them to that exact location in the tour. This also allows CSB/SJU to respond to questions by emailing bookmarks to specific tour videos and content to prospective students and parents.
- InteractiveVideo Technology
Using CampusTours content-managed InteractiveVideo technology, The College of Saint Benedict & Saint John's University videos contain cue points that lend additional explanation to topics discussed in the videos. Breaking videos into shorter thematic chapters and then integrating InteractiveVideo cue points into the videos allows schools to add depth and granularity to their presentations, without burdening those that are not interested in particular topics. This approach to video allows viewers to self-select the content most interesting and pertinent to them, and, just as importantly, to allow content that is not to glide past unwatched.
- Content managed virtual tours
Short thematic virtual tours allow the College of Saint Benedict & Saint John's University to develop presentations aimed at different prospective student constituencies or different aspects of the CSB/SJU experience. These short videos give the institution flexibility in the future to add new tour sections devoted to particular programs, aspects of campus life, or even foreign-language speaking tours for students and parents whose primary language is not English. Finally, because all of the virtual tour videos include content-managed InteractiveVideo, CSB/SJU may insert Interactive Teasers at any point in the future to give extra emphasis to any topic mentioned in the video.
- Content managed interactive maps
The College of Saint Benedict & Saint John's University tour features dual interactive maps backed with the CampusTours MultiMedia Engine Custom Interactive Map System to allow CSB/SJU to update and republish any aspect of the maps or even change the base map artwork and interactive hotspots when the campus map artwork is updated. Content managed custom layers allow for highlighting of buildings/locations or the placement of icons, and the ability to hide layers allows schools to create customized maps and email deep links to them to various campus constituencies.
- Deep Linking
Deep linking to the tour or map in any state gives the capability to provide specific experiences to particular visitor groups.
- Accessibility Tags
Accessibility tags within the content management system allow for precise tagging of all tour graphical items and content.
- Dynamic Branding Bar
Gives The College of Saint Benedict & Saint John's University freedom to change the tour branding in lockstep with institutional identity updates. New logos and taglines can be inserted at any time to keep the tour consistent with new branding initiatives.
- Content Managed Calls To Action
Allows CSB/SJU to control persistent calls to action, the icons and text that represent them, the locations to which they link and the creation of new calls to action.
- Independent Media Player
The CampusTours Independent Media Player gives institutions like The College of Saint Benedict & Saint John's University an opportunity to reuse their wealth of tour content outside the tour interface. Using the MultiMedia Engine content management system, CSB/SJU can assemble and publish infinite numbers of unique collections of videos, photos, slideshows, musical performances and much more.
- Burn To CD-ROM
Burn to CD-ROM capability permits The College of Saint Benedict & Saint John's University to burn the entire presentation to cross-platform CD-ROM or create a cross-platform ISO disk image for large runs of CDs.
