If you thought that interactive maps were too technical or advanced to be used by the institutes, think again. Even students aiming to join some institutes as well the institutes offering such courses can find it easy to come closer to each other with the use of interactive maps. In case you are wondering how to use interactive maps for the purpose, here are some cues.
If you are a student who wants to know about the courses offered by various schools or the opportunities that their students will have after the completion of the course, it may not be possible to visit each institute in person and enquire about the same. However, if the website of the institute of your choice has an interactive map, you can easily drag the map to come across the faculty or school of your choice and get details about the same. Thanks to the user friendly navigation offered by interactive maps, it has become easier to get details of the courses, past records of placement, opportunities that you can get or shows where you can participate with the assistance of the faculties, etc - that too sitting from the comfort of your home, provided you have a computer with an internet connection. Some institutes even link their interactive maps to a virtual tour of the facilities on offer, which will help you have an overview of what to expect once you get admitted.
When it comes to the institutes, using interactive maps make them easily accessible to a wide base of students who usually respond faster to visual and interactive elements as compared to stale texts. Many institutes use interactive image maps with multiple or single clickable hot spots to make the entire browsing experience more attractive. When a prospective student clicks on the hot spots, he/she gets to see more information in a pop-up box, or can follow the links to access other online resources or detailed web pages. For example, a fashion institute can use image maps to display their floor plan and allow web surfers to see details of the units (what classes are taught in that area, courses on offer, fee structure, internship opportunities with reputed brands or designers etc) when they bring their mouse pointer over a particular part of the map, a descriptive text, or a logo. Such elements of the interactive image maps may also be linked to some separate web pages where the user will get further details related to the topic.
Whether you are a student wishing to enroll into a course or have an institute that's looking to bring more students into its folds, interactive maps can help you get as well as make available real-time information in a jiffy. Why not use it today to see how the maps can make life simpler?
