506 BYOD: Using 360 Images and Captivate 2019 to Create an Interactive Virtual Tour
10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Wednesday, June 26
How many times have you tried to explain to a new employee, visitor, or client how to find you in your complicated (or not so complicated building), only to have them get lost in an endless sea of corridors on their first visit? Maybe you have an environment you would like someone to see but they are not physically able to experience it for themselves, like a museum or art gallery? You can do all this and more with a series of 360 photos imported into an eLearning authoring tool to create a virtual interactive tour.
In this hands-on session you will learn how you can use a series of simple 360 photos to create an impactful virtual tour. We will explore the tools required to create 360 images with some quick tips and tricks for getting that perfect 360 picture. Together we will import 360 images into Captivate 2019 and create navigation between the series of 360 images. For added interactivity we will create hotspots in the images on our tour. You will leave this session empowered with the ability to create your own virtual interactive tour using 360 images in Captivate 2019.
In this session, you will learn:
- What tools are required to create a 360 image
- Tips and tricks for capturing a good 360 image
- How to link a series of 360 photos to create navigation for a tour
- How to create interactive information hotspots within your 360 photos
- How to publish the series of 360 photos to create a virtual interactive 360 tour
