Washington, DC-based education company EAB has acquired YouVisit, a provider of virtual tour and interactive web content for higher education.
The amount of the deal was not disclosed.
The acquisition adds virtual campus tours and interactive web content to EAB’s enrollment services. In this way, YouVisit’s technology platform, together with its expertise in immersive content creation, further enhances the company’s ability to allow colleges and universities to find, engage, and enroll new students.
Led by CEO Abi Mandelbaum, YouVisit provides a patented technology platform that layers 360-degree photos and videos with other media types to create immersive web experiences. Colleges partner with YouVisit to produce interactive virtual campus tours and dynamic digital experiences that give prospective students a more complete understanding of life at their schools. This enhanced multimedia content is especially valuable for underrepresented and out-of-state students for whom visiting college campuses in person may be a challenge, particularly at the outset of their college search.
Led by Chief Executive Officer David Felsenthal, EAB harnesses the collective power of more than 1,500 schools, colleges, and universities to uncover and apply proven practices and insights. From kindergarten to college and beyond, the company partners with education leaders, practitioners, and staff to accelerate progress and drive results across three key areas: enrollment management, student success, and institutional operations and strategy.
