The university launched the platform last month at South By Southwest, transporting users from Austin to College Station in virtual reality.
Now the software is available for anyone to experience Aggieland at their own pace, in a 360-degree panorama making for an exciting virtual experience, says Texas A&M Senior Graphic Designer Michael Green.
“It puts you right into the action and provides the ability to explore and get a feel for the Texas A&M campus in a way that gets visitors and prospective students really excited about what we offer as a university,” Green notes. “Aside from prospective students, I can see current students, faculty and staff, parents and especially former students loving how they can get immersed in Aggieland from wherever they are. Xplorer is a really fun and compelling way to see Texas A&M up close, in virtual reality, and at your own pace.”
