MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas State is offering a virtual open house to connect with distance education students who aren't able to travel to campus.
The school says in a news release that the virtual open house features videos of online instructors and advisers, a campus photo tour and online program information.
Lynda Spire, assisting continuing education dean, says the online open house is designed to allow prospective virtual learning students to experience the campus and see what resources and services are available.
The effort also gives current distance education students a chance to explore campus up close using interactive features like Google Street View. Plus, a live chat feature lets students communicate directly with distance student services staff to answer questions.
