Leah Mallett’s Session(s):
8:30 a.m.–9:15 am. PDT —
What if you could capture that seeing-is-believing campus visit feeling and make it available to anyone, anywhere on the planet? That was the challenge presented to Bucknell’s Communications and Admissions teams — even before the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this session, you’ll see how the Bucknell Virtual Experience started from scratch to become an interactive multimedia space that can be experienced on a desktop, mobile device or through an Oculus Quest virtual reality headset. In addition, it will walk you through the creation of a multi-channel launch strategy — including social media best practices in both organic and paid content.
