The eLearning courses were made with 360 images
. 360 images gave the place the true authenticity which was sought. With 360 images, the viewers could „walk“ down the streets, halls, and rooms at their own pace. This 3dimensional perspective which was achieved with the 360 images, enabled the viewer to look around the place like they were there
To enliven the abandoned places and, as well, capture the viewers’ attention, we used little short documentary videos and various kinds of pictures of the place throughout the course.
It was understood that the way to keep the place alive is through stories, and through the people that tell the stories of the place as it was and how it looked before.
Therefore, one of the main challenges was solved with the videos. The viewer’s attention was captured when various kinds of videos and pictures were placed around the area on the 360 images. Viewers had to look around, concentrate, and move through the place to find the sought videos and pictures. In that way, they explored the abandoned place and came to the end of the course.
