Traditional video has become an important and engaging component of training programs. That said, while it’s a fantastic tool for learning, it is still often limited to the linear path or story that it shares. People can watch video, but they can’t control it themselves. But what if L&D professionals created a more immersive world for learners by giving them the ability to explore anything and everything around them? That more interactive video experience is possible now with 360-degree video.

In this session, you’ll learn more about what 360-degree video is, how you can create it, and why you’ll want to use it for training. You’ll explore the technical side by looking at what it takes to capture and edit 360-degree video on a budget and how you can share what you create with your learners. You’ll also look at practical application through experiencing some of the real 360-degree videos that are being used for training and development right now. By the end of this session, you’ll not only know how to create your own 360-degree videos, you’ll also know how to explain the business case for using them.

In this session, you will learn:

  • About the technology you can use to record and edit 360-degree video
  • How to view and share 360-degree video with others
