“So far, promotions are still being carried out through the creation of pamphlets, school websites and social media. So, there needs to be a little effort to attract the interest of parents of prospective students by providing complete information such as this virtual tour, “explained Indirati.

The virtual 360 era is an effort for schools to continue to be able to approach and introduce schools to the wider community and provide them with an understanding of every advantage and achievement possessed by the school so that it can be a selling point for schools to be more convincing and reliable. Virtual tours can also show prospective students and their parents what they expect from their experience and familiarize themselves with navigating the rooms and facilities owned by the school in order to show the added value of the existence of the school itself.
