And as the interest around campus continues to grow in this area, so does the school’s influence in creating dynamic 360/VR content to impact lives everywhere.  This month, FAMU released its first official Virtual Reality Tour  which was inspired by a 360-Experience created using ThingLink last summer.

Unfortunately, I am not always able to reach all my parents and community through open houses and parent meetings. The library often gets overlooked.
