University re-creates an authentic campus visit experience

Posted by Kyla Ball on Nov 13, 2020 2:51:48 AM

Research undertaken for the university website had proven that prospective students really valued these in-person tours, which give them an insight into living and studying at Rochester. Crucially, the choice to apply to or accept a place at Rochester was often made on the basis of connections made with current students during a campus visit.

TVET in the cloud: ThingLink and OEP showcase a virtual course creator with chatbot

Posted by Ulla-Maaria Koivula on Nov 5, 2019 6:01:00 PM

One of the most interesting application areas for virtual lessons and visual learning environments is technical and vocational education and training (TVET). Examples that we have so far seen from ThingLink users include interactive user manuals, simulations, virtual campus tours, introductions to working environments, safety drills and teacher training.
