Augment the learning landscape with 360° images and videos and convert them into interactive eLearning material with customizable overlay items such as information blurbs, audio content & quizzes with Adobe Captivate. Make learners explore their surroundings and actively engage with the environment to enhance retention. Achieve complex learning use cases such as compliance protocols in action, virtual walkthroughs, realistic product demos and more.

Steps:

  1. Now you can include 360 slides, right inside standard 2D Adobe Captivate projects. You should review the steps for 360 projects from the Immersive learning with VR experiences page to familiarize yourself with hotspots and interaction.
  2. When you blend 2D and 3D in a single project, Captivate will only play the project within a standard 2D browser, full immersive VR is not supported. To add 360 to a 2D project, simply click on the insert slide button from the Toolbar and select the 360 Slide option.

Note that you may now mix and match various activities and slide types within a common responsive project. Feel free to import PowerPoint decks, include video demos or software simulations, knowledge checks quizzes and more. The finished project will play within a 2D browser, and the 3D will be navigable by mouse.

I can’t wait to try it.  It looks so cool.

Sure Harry – you can add photos via hotspot, just as you do with text or video.

How does the user select, click, drag?

They can click to interact with any hotspot if they are in browser or using a VR rig with a clicker. If they are using a VR rig with no clicker they use a method called ‘Gaze’ – this method basically means that they stare at the item of interest for a few seconds. As they do so a little ring paints itself like a timer around the hotspot, when it reaches full – the item is ‘clicked’  – so the basic answer is, they stare at it to click it.

So, after all the hype, its 360 hotspots using 3D glasses. Give a business or workshop example please.

Hi Ken, practical examples that are most effective include the following:

  • Orientation walkthrough of critical facilities
  • Facility training
  • Systems training for complex mechanicals (eg. flight controls)
  • Scenario based training – where there is a strong need / desire to position the learner in an environment that is as close as possible to the real thing.

Couple of notes – if you want interactive 3D with simulated physics etc, this solution is not going to be sufficient. This is a good solution for simple 360 representations with easy to create interactions and quizzes. It will work for branched scenarios / branched navigation through facilities / systems. It is also almost inconcievably cheaper than doing a full blown 3D simulation.

Interesting potential for this as well!
