How Can Virtual Reality 360 Slides Be Good for Training?
An example is the best way to showcase this topic. Here we go.
Let’s pretend you’ve been working from home for a while… You’re about to get back to the office and you want your employees to know of certain changes as they get back in. Rather than sending a whole video tutorial, you can simply send them a 360 slide. We at Miranda Park Learning create 360 slides with Adobe Captivate.
Why 360 VR Slides?
They are a simple and easy way to send messages within a picture or video. We have a 47-second example to show you at the end of this blog.
How Do You Build VR Slides?
We use Adobe Captivate and Adobe makes it easy. But, you do have some pre-work to do, especially if you don’t want to use a template slide. First, if you’re looking to showcase a specific space, you’ll need an image (be it a picture or video) of that space. But not just any image. A 360 image.
How Do You Take a 360 VR Picture or Video?
You can take a 360 pic/video with a 360 VR camera. You’ll find some camera choices online that don’t break the bank.
How Do You Insert Messages?
This is where Adobe Captivate comes in for us. Once you have captured the image, then you can drop it into the VR function of Adobe Captivate. Once there, you’ll be able to add messages, audio, and even add mini-quizzes if you’d like.
Ready to See a 47-Second Example of an Adobe Captivate 360 Slide in Action?
We got you covered. A few things to note about this example:
1- We used Adobe Captivate’s Virtual Reality Project function.
2- We used one of the 360 pic templates Adobe Captivate includes (thanks, Adobe!).
3- We used the hotspot feature to create the messages you see in the video.
1- We used Adobe Audition for the audio.
2- We used Adobe Premiere Pro to put the Captivate export, audio, and video together.
Click play and enjoy! Also, think of the possibilities… VR is so cool!
