visitBAYLOR: An RHB-created experience

Baylor University recently collaborated with RHB to create visitBAYLOR, a unified Portal-based experience serving as the hub for all admission-related events–including registration, day-of itineraries and post-event surveys–as well as dynamic components that serve the digital signage in the Hurd Center.

Starting with the Welcome Pods visitors encounter when they enter the Hurd Center to check-in for their campus visit, continuing to the display screens behind the John Cheng Welcome Desk (where they’re greeted by members of the admissions team) and ending with the auditorium screen where the Baylor team delivers their pre-tour presentation, RHB created dynamic content controlled through Slate, including:

  • A welcome screen displaying the names of all students scheduled to tour campus

  • Maps showing visitor counts from states and countries

  • Personalized badges printed on-demand directly from Slate upon check-in

  • QR codes to take quizzes (the results of which dynamically appear on subsequent screens)

  • Functionality that highlights connections between visitors–like shared hometown or academic interests–that encourages visitors to connect with one another

Once the presentation is over and their campus tour begins, students have access to a day-of app experience, complete with an itinerary, campus map, information about their tour guide and alerts that help them stay on track.
