LUC 2016 Session Recap: Virtual Reality


At this year’s Lectora® User Conference in Fort Lauderdale, Aldebaran Canacasco, Senior Manager of Learning Technologies, and German Gonzalez, Graphic Designer for Multimedia and eLearning, both from OPENTEC, talked about the bright idea of using virtual reality in a course. In the session they talked about tech, limitations, and best practices.Since virtual reality is a trending topic in the entertainment world, it was great to see an example come to life in Lectora. Here are the basics steps of creating and delivering virtual reality in eLearning:

  1. Use a camera capable of capturing 360° content to record your training
  2. Download the 360 Video Metadata app for YouTube
  3. Save and upload the video to a company channel
  4. Use the YouTube option in Lectora to insert the video into your course
