Make exploring 360° images dynamic and exciting. Manage how learners start and navigate your interaction.

Setting the Initial View

Set the opening view of your interaction.

In the 360° image editor, go to the Interaction tab, click Edit, then move the camera to your preferred angle.

Adjust the initial camera angle

As you move the camera, the latitude and longitude units at the bottom of the 360° image dynamically update with the exact coordinates. Click Set to save your changes. Click Reset to return to the original view. Click Cancel to discard your changes.

Tip: To center the opening view around an interactive element, click the hotspot or marker on the Markers & Hotspots panel.

Choosing Navigation Options

Choose how learners navigate your interaction—freely or in a guided tour.

In the 360° image editor, go to the Markers & Hotspots panel, then choose either Free navigation or Guided tour as the navigation mode.

Markers and hotspots panel.

Free navigation is great for letting learners explore interactive elements as they wish. Mark the Show progress indicator box to help learners keep track of their progress.

A guided tour is perfect for directing learners through a specific set of interactive elements. It presents markers and hotspots one by one in the sequence you specify in the Markers & Hotspots panel. Just drag the interactive elements to your preferred order. A progress indicator always displays at the bottom of the guide-tour interaction.

Tip: Use hotspot hints to help learners easily find hotspots in your guided-tour interactions.

There’s more work underway to enhance navigation in 360° images. Here's a sneak peek of what's to come:

  • Accessibility: Empower all learners to have the same engaging experience with built-in accessibility features for 360° images.
  • Translation: Localize 360° interactions alongside the rest of your course when you export text to XLIFF or Word for translation.
  • Tooltips: Display tooltips when learners hover over markers and hotspots in 360° interactions so learners know what to expect before they click.
