Interaction points

We start the explanation at the bottom of the diagram, where the specific interaction points are located:

Interaction points are points that allow a designer to add enrichment to the 360°-video. When a user opens these interaction points, the 360°-video pauses and he or she will see the content of the interaction point. Moreover, it is possible to select whether an interaction point is mandatory or not. When a user tries to skip a mandatory interaction point, the video will automatically pause. Only when the mandatory point has been completed, will the video resume. Each interaction point, can have one specific action:

  • Text: this offers the possibility for the designer to add text to an interaction point.
  • Image: this offers the possibility for the designer to add an image to an interaction point.
  • 2D video: this offers the possibility for the designer to add a 2D video to an interaction point.
  • Audio: this offers the possibility for the designer to add audio to an interaction point.
  • Search area: A search area is a location defined by the designer in the 360° video, which a user has to search and click. This offers the possibility for the designer to define one or more search areas in the 360° environment, which the user has to search for.
  • Multi-choice question – text: this offers the possibility for the designer to add a multi-choice question to an interaction point, where the possible answers consist of text. A correct answer is indicated with a green color, while a wrong answer is indicated with a red color.

  • Multiple-choice question – search area: this offers the possibility for the designer to add a multiple-choice question to an interaction point, where the possible answers consist of search areas.
