Although our virtual tours and 360 panorama technology are popular in real estate, that is not the only application! This guide will review all of the different ways you can use VR tours, including education, e-commerce, entertainment, and more.
The education sector is perfect for incorporating 360 virtual tours, as it allows you to create a unique and immersive experience for your students.
Whether you are teaching a class or providing on-the-job training, a VR tour can help you get better results. This type of learning engages all of your senses. That means everyone can get the most out of the experience – regardless of their preferred learning style.
We can help you incorporate simulations, videos, 3D models, and other helpful resources so you can achieve your educational goals.
For example, you can set up quiz cards throughout the tour to test their knowledge of what they have learned so far. You can incorporate gamification concepts and give them their scores on the spot, so your viewers will stay motivated and engaged.
If someone gets a perfect score on the quiz, they can move on to the next part of the VR tour – otherwise, you can require them to review the material again before moving forward.
The uses for virtual tours in e-commerce are endless. They are perfect for an online or pop-up store since it gives your customers the ability to feel like they are shopping in person!
360 panoramas will help them browse your product offerings, and when they find something that they like, they can click on it to learn more. The pop-up can contain valuable information like colors and sizes available, pricing, and link to make a purchase.
There are also applications in entertainment for VR tours. How cool would it be to walk through a virtual museum or art gallery?
You can take in the sites and learn about art and history from the comfort of your home.
Your viewers can enjoy the virtual tour at their own pace, and they can click on information hotspots to learn more about a specific painting or object in the museum. This can give them a pop-up with facts about what they are seeing, or even direct them to a video our outside link that is relevant!
If you prefer, you can even create a guided tour – where you lead your viewers along a dedicated path and give helpful commentary along the way. The benefit here is that you provide them with all of the guidance they need, but they still have the freedom to view in 360 degrees and click on objects they are interested in.
While this may not seem like the most obvious options, VR tours can also be used for parks. Setting up a 360 panorama can give your viewers the chance to explore a national park or other areas of the great outdoors without having to be there physically.
This technology can be a game-changer for those with limited mobility that may not be able to travel or access certain areas of the park!
