Is 360 Video in SL (Also known to some as VR) integration on the horizon?

Good day! 

I have seen that captivate 19 has incorporated easy use of 360 images and video in the standard settings of a project creation. They also have the ability to tag hot spots to areas within the 360 environment. 

Although cool... I would rather use SL. Is there any plans on the horizon to be able to do this with ease within the SL basic set up or work arounds to be able to do this?


Thanks in advance!

Hi Tyler,

Great question, and it's come up a few times prior in the E-Learning Heroes community. Storyline doesn't create 360 videos, but there are a few examples in this discussion and this other one on how folks have added them into their courses. 

Hope that helps you get started! We don't have anything on our Coming Soon section of the “What’s New” page for Articulate 360, but we'd love to know more about what you're looking for in a 360/Virtual reality video. Can you share details with our product team as a feature request?

Hi, Tyler!

I have exciting news to share!
We just released another update for Storyline 360. In Update 54, we’ve included important fixes and new features.

One of the features we’ve included is:

Create immersive learning experiences with 360° images. Add interactive elements, such as hotspots and markers to engage learners as they explore.

360° images are currently in public beta for Storyline 360, which means you can use them for production as we continue to enhance them.

To take advantage of this feature, launch the Articulate 360 desktop app on your computer and click the Update button next to Storyline 360. You'll find our step-by-step instructions here.
