SESSION ROOM: ATLANTA 2
Maximize your personnel power and impress your recruits by using technology. A few bells and whistles can go a long way in creating a memorable experience. In 2009/2010, NC State implemented video e-mails, an audio campus tour for basic cell phones, a GPS-based campus tour application for the iPhone (soon to be available for the Android as well), and a GPS-based audio visual bus tour. We also stepped up our social networking with increased Facebook activity and a Twitter account. The session will cover reasons why we implemented these technologies, how we implemented them, along with how they fit into our overall recruitment process. We will also provide contacts and advice for institutions considering these enhancements.
