Audencia Nantes School of Management in France is giving potential students the opportunity to stroll around its campus like in real life without having to travel to France. Working with specialist firm YouVisit, the school is using the Oculus Rift Development Kit to turn a virtual campus tour into virtual reality.
Together with a handful of other international schools, Audencia Nantes is one of the first in the world to place its faith in use of the Oculus Rift with YouVisit's software. The success of the trail has convinced the school to invest in the technology for a fall recruitment campaign. Students can test the headsets in their home countries at any education fair where Audencia will be present.
Founded by three former students who came up against the problem of getting to know a campus when living thousands of miles away, YouVisit already provided virtual walking tours to about 1000 schools and universities. The firm hopes that the total immersion provided by the Oculus Rift will take their services to a new level.
