We’re Growing a Collection of 360 Images for Reuse

When ThingLink 360/VR first made an appearance, we quickly realized there was a need to create a collection of 360 images for our users. We have worked in several ways to help our users find 360 images.

Kathy Schrock’s 360 Images for Schools

When we first launched ThingLink 360/VR, Kathy Schrock jumped in to help us address important digital citizenship issues and create a Flickr group to serve as a repository of 360 images that are properly licensed for reuse by schools.  If you have a 360 camera, we invite you to join Kathy’s group and add some images to this collection.

Our Library of Stunning 360 Images

Over the course of the 1st year, we created a library of 360 images for our users. We started with state and world capitals, and have continued to grow our collection. Every 360 image that appears in our library is available for modification and reuse on our platform.

Empowering Users to Capture 360 Photos with Phones

We have spent the past year teaching educators and students how to use their own phones, iPads, and 360 cameras to capture the world in 360 photos. Use of phones levels the playing field for those who are unable to purchase a camera. Anyone can take a 360 photo with the device in their pocket! That’s quite empowering for teachers and students.
