Creating and distributing simulation-based training is challenging. Developing a script and storyboard that accurately replicates an authentic environment requires special considerations outside of more traditional mediums used for learning. Acquiring and coordinating talent, equipment, and development skills can take a significant amount of time and resources. With all these barriers, it’s no surprise that the intimidation factor discourages many organizations from developing their own 360-degree video assets, preventing an immersive training experience.

But creating 360-degree video is more feasible than you might expect. In this case study session, find out how St. John Ambulance was able to use 360-degree video with hotspots to create an immersive, interactive simulation that was widely accessible to users, and easier to design and develop than one might initially assume. You’ll find out about the trials and tribulations the team experienced around scripting, location preparation, filming, and editing a 360-degree video. You’ll then discover how they created interactivity by blending different filming techniques with embedded hotspots. Finally, you’ll look at how this kind of content can be distributed using a standard LMS, or by hosting it on YouTube or other 360-enabled video streaming sites.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to use an agile development model when creating 360-degree video
  • About a tested pre-production strategy for scripting and creating 360-degree video content
  • What makes a suitable 360-degree filming location
  • Tips on the dos and don’ts of filming in 360 degrees
  • How to reduce scope creep when creating a 360-degree interactive video
  • Strategies for building interactivity into 360-degree video

Novice to intermediate designers, developers, and managers.
