A New Method of Athletics Recruiting Using Virtual Reality

Student: Kerry Egan, 2017-2018

Sponsor: Midwest Promotional Group, Burr Ridge, IL

This project will focus on the development of virtual reality tours in multiple settings. Virtual reality is the future of college recruiting for both admissions and athletics. Midwest Promotional Group will have an inclusive solution for colleges and universities, of all sizes, and allow prospective students to connect with them. I will be working to create a storyboard for a sample tour, as well as with developers to create the VR tour from the footage. I will implement customer validation to identify which group of target organizations would be best to partner with, as well as identify if this is a pain point in the market. This program can become the main tool for students looking to experience college life from their choice of institutions, from any state, without leaving the comfort of their own home.
