Image of the Week: Embedding 360/VR Images in a Map

Students are returning to the classrooms with the start of a new school year; some were fortunate to travel. As a teacher, part of our mission is to introduce students to a wider world view than what they may have seen.  One way to virtually introduce them to places we have traveled to is to embed 360 images into a standard ThingLink image of a map. Our image of the week comes to us from Juha Salminen.

Juha took a trip to Prague, Czech Republic and wanted their students to have the chance to ‘visit’ as well. Using the feature of embedding a channel (single 360/VR ThingLink image) as a tag on a standard ThingLink image, Juha’s students are able to learn about various locations around the historic city.
