Adding to Michael's experience, you can also make use of your tablet's compass if you so wish - I remember playing around with a 360 panorama using pano2vr and storyline 2 (early updates) and the html5 version worked flawlessly as a web object - just don't expect much in terms if interoperability unless you are prepared to do all the heavy lifting.

Hi Alexandros, thanks for reminding me of pano2vr. I had done a test with this one as well, see here.

This example is easily 5 years old - back in the day, I wanted to find a way to report coordinates back to Storyline so i could make use of those for storytelling scenarios (such as triggering dialogue or other SL resources); I think I gave up very early in my attempt to achieve this (lack of API, yada yada yada; we've had this conversation a million times...).  

Making nothing further of that example aside, I think it speaks volumes to how consistently good Pano2VR html5 output has been over the years.

So how about Storyline 360? Can the app recognize panorama photos and can the images be made interactive with comments or questions or drag and drops? Okay, I'm extremely hopeful but I need to create an experience were the user can positively identify items at a given location that do not belong. I don't have a Ricoh Theta360 cam but I can make it in PS. I just need apps that will allow me to place it in the Storyline slide and I can create interactions over or under it. Any thoughts?

Most of these examples have very little to do with Storyline and very much to do with the 3rd party apps used to create and manipulate the panorama which is then just displayed by SL as a WebObject. I would be very surprised if SL360 couldn't do this.

But if you're expecting native functionality, I'm afraid the answer is no.

In your case, you can probably do what you describe in a 3rd party app like Pano2VR (and even score the drag 'n' drops too) but you would have to find a way to pass the score from said app to SL360 manually using JavaScript.

Hi Allyncia, 

In addition to Alexandros's suggestion of using those images/videos inside Storyline as a web object, I wanted to let you know our team has also heard a bunch of requests for 360° videos or virtual reality tools in Storyline. It sounds like that may help for your needs on interactive panoramic images? I'll be sure to link this discussion to the request our team is tracking so that I can update you here as more information is available!
