"Discovery learning, remote field trips, facility tours, training simulations, health & safety

quizzes and hazard hunts are just a few applications that virtual tour training took by storm." - 3D Vista

Have you ever wondered what virtual tours are and how you can benefit from them? In simple words, 360 virtual tours are a series of three-dimensional images or videos through which you trek around places and areas without having to go there physically. Do you still not

360 virtual tours allow you to explore spaces like buildings, landmarks, factories, etc., virtually with more than realistic photographs and videos. This helps you walk through that space, inspect it thoroughly and perceive the atmosphere and the environment almost precisely as it is in real life; so here's the catch, you don't have to go there to experience it, but on the contrary, all you have to do is use either your phone, tablet, laptop, computer, etc. to access it. Other than this, virtual tours prove incredibly beneficial for E-learning, training, and safety; here is how:

Electronic learning, aka e-learning, refers to acquiring knowledge through electronic devices such as smartphones, computers, tablets, etc. So what role does a virtual tour play in this? The answer to this is simply the fact that e-learning can be mundane, and the only way to make it enjoyable and productive is the provision of a real-life learning experience to hold the learner's attention. E-learning through virtual tours has improved and progressed significantly over the years, resulting in several approaches' surfacing to make the learning experience both exciting and fruitful. Such methods in the virtual tours include quizzes, scores, compelling voice-overs, realistic representations of the real thing, and an overall brain-stimulating educational experience, which proves to be favorable in every possible perspective.

Another category in which 360 virtual tour proves to be beneficial is virtual training; it's almost the same as electronic learning, but the significant difference in virtual training includes the training of employees and interns that a company wants to hire. For this, they have to offer training exercises through virtual tours of the workplace and learn to be familiar with the specific work environment and be trained accordingly. This allows the recruiting company to understand and judge the candidate's eligibility through quizzes, performances, and scoring. The best part about virtual training is that you can train employees through well-structured, well-defined exercises where they get virtually involved with the equipment they have to use in the future.

This brings us to another aspect of 360 virtual tours, i.e., safety. Last but not most minor safety is by far the most important benefit of virtual tours, so how is it safe? When trainees are being trained and educated virtually, they are naturally avoiding any physical involvement with the surroundings that might be causing any harm to the employees. In places like construction sites or factories where heavy and threatening machinery is used that requires cautious dealing and experienced tutoring, virtual tours become necessary to steer clear of any injuries to ensure the complete safety of the new employees.
