405 Case Study: First Aid Simulations Using 360-Degree Video and VR
10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Thursday, October 26
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.

Electronic Pedagogy and Information Consultant
St. John Ambulance
Stevan Anas is an electronic pedagogy and information consultant with St. John Ambulance. As the lead interactivity designer for St. John Ambulance BC Council, Stevan was elated when he learned he would be the project manager for a 360-degree mass casualty simulation. He had a game design background and experience in creating multi-linear safety training, but was a novice to filming in 360 degrees. This provided a unique opportunity that challenged Stevan’s preconceptions of scripting, planning, and filming in 360 degrees. With extensive experience in quality assurance testing, he overcame obstacles to help this first-of-its-kind project succeed.
