Pokémon Go–the popular augmented reality game from Nintendo that’s sweeping the U.S. has caught the eye of several creative professionals at colleges using the CampusBird Interactive Map and Virtual Tour platform.
Pokémon Go Guilford
The team first got wind of the Pokémon Go + CampusBird activity from the following Tweet from Guilford College. And (as map/tech geeks do), we had to explore further.
Guilford College is already crushing it with a host of virtual tours: sustainability tour, disc golf course tour, athletics facilities tour, dining options tour, admissions tour and a Center for Continuing Education tour. Woah! So they went ahead and used the CampusBird virtual tour builder to add another super cool tour with Pokéstops and gyms.
