Publisher's Toolbox and UK's University of Kent offer virtual taste of campus life

Publisher's Toolbox would like to announce a digital collaboration with the University of Kent, one of England's leading academic institutions.

With prospective students currently unable to physically attend open days due to Covid-19 restrictions, the collaboration will help bridge the gap by giving students a taste of campus life from the safety and comfort of their homes.

A first of its kind in the education sector, the newly released University of Kent mobile app will feature on-demand video streaming, augmented reality technology, and interactive virtual tours of the campus, giving students an opportunity to “explore campus life” from the palm of their hands, while increasing engagement with the university along every step of the admissions process.

Fresh off the launch of our digital partnership with Bristol Sport in October 2019, this latest venture into the education sector is part of a wider shift for Publisher’s Toolbox that sees the digital platform provider branch out from its publishing roots.

John Miles, Publisher’s Toolbox product director, says: “University communities are highly communicative and interactive, so it makes sense, given our track record of helping traditional media organisations establish digital communities, to prioritise this sector. We’re proud that we got to work with the University of Kent, as it is one of the UK’s forward-thinking academic institutions. This is an indication that we’re heading in the right direction with our digital and mobile app community offering.”
