The Challenge

When the Coronavirus pandemic hit the United States in March of 2020, it became impossible for many prospective students to tour the Baker University campus.  The Baker team needed an engaging way to showcase their campus and history.

Our Solution

O8’s UX/UI design specialist designed an interactive campus map where visitors could navigate to the different buildings to see photos and learn about what takes place there.  As this tool is intended to recruit new students, video testimonials and admissions forms are easily accessible as visitors navigate the page.
