Creating Immersive Learning Experiences with 360° Images #467

Labeled graphics interactions are one of the most popular interactions because they’re easy to create and only need a single image to turn static visuals into interactive, explore-type activities. 

Similarly, 360° images offer the same ease of creation but on a whole new level. They bring static images to life, allowing learners to explore real-world environments as if they were actually there. And that’s what this week’s challenge is all about!

🏆 Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to show how 360° images can be used in e-learning.

If you're a Rise 360, the 360° images feature is a fantastic way to enhance your courses by using Rise 360's Storyline blocks.

Hi Jeni, Go to the latest challenge scroll down the page you will see a section named "Upcoming Challenges" with a date. On this page you will see this: "UPCOMING CHALLENGE Challenge #468 (07.05): Drag-and-drop interactions. This will be a general drag-drop challenge, so you can share anything you like." I believe there are no "close" dates, you can do any challenge at any time. They are added to the Recap overtime, not sure if that has a cutoff date. If you want feedback and the max. amount of people to see it posting within the first couple of days of the start date seems to work best. P.s. Something I often forget to do that. If you want to be updated on what is happening in a particular challenge you can subscribe to the challenge by clicking the Subscribe button at th... Expand

It is lavender season in California, and although we are not the south of France, there are some wonderful lavender farms in the state. 123Farm is part of a historic landmark called the Highland Springs Resort. Einstein and Hemmingway would visit to enjoy the warm, dry air (seems like Hemmingway was everywhere). While at the farm I stepped into one of the newly built gift shops and the shop associate said "We just opened, and I'm learning about all the lavender, and where everything is, and how to get the sound system to work." My demo was born that minute. My challenge was to find a 360-lavender shop illustration to use. I couldn't find one so I tested AI. All the visuals in the demo are AI generated. The shop... Expand

I love admiring how people style their homes, but wouldn't put that as a skill high up on my own list. My husband and I just started thinking about moving, and I have been fascinated by how much the "stuff" in the listing images affects my opinion of the home. The inspiration for this challenge came from the open houses we checked out this weekend. *On a side note...turns out open houses are a pretty fun free date night! Thank you Jayashree and Elizabeth for the info on adding quiz questions! I hadn't done that before and went back and added a few in to try that out. Also, thank you everyone who has been sharing how they made their AI images. Looking forward to experimenting more with that. I decided to stick with a stock photo for this project. Luckily, I was able to find on... Expand
