September 16, 2015 – Today the University of Notre Dame kicked off their VisitND Challenge, a student competition to build the best mobile campus tour for the ND Mobile app. The goal of the new tour is to improve the guest experience by providing information on points of interest around campus. At the same time, the contest will offer students a practical learning opportunity.
Proposals are due September 21, and from those entries, ten will be selected to actually build their tour within the ND Mobile app. The ten entries selected to build a tour will be given access to a private development environment to create their tour. Each tour stop must contain a one-paragraph description, a high-quality image of the stop, and a high-quality one-minute video with audio overview of the stop. No coding experience is necessary.
The ten tours will then be judged, and five finalists will advance. Those five tours will be made available for the public to review the weekend of their Wake Forest football game, and campus visitors will be encourage to take the tours and provide feedback. On December 1st, the top three tours will then be awarded prizes.
Additional information about the challenge can be found on the Notre Dame site.
The Challenge is sponsored by Notre Dame’s Office of the Executive Vice President, SAP, Innovation Park, Modo Labs and the Office of Information Technologies.
We’ll continue to provide updates leading up to the announcement of the winner.BACK TO BLOG
