VRguide: 360 degree video player for the classroom
360 degree video player for the classroom
In accordance with EASA guidelines
VRguide is a 360 degree video platform designed in accordance with EASA guidelines on distance learning, Issue 5, 18.08.2020.
The platform allows for easy sharing and synchronizing of 360 degree videos. In VRguide pilots can either watch videos alone or with others in a class room like experience. The videos can be paused and discussed while instructors can point out details and much more without sitting in the same physical location.

Schools and organizations record and upload their video material (360 degree or regular 2D videos) to the cloud, and all headsets in the organization can download the material from here.
Teachers or instructors can create a classroom session and remotely control a video with an entire class of up to 25 students.
Users can watch videos alone and even offline.
VRguide is the perfect supplement to VRflow, VRpilot’s interactive cockpit procedure trainer. Students can see how procedures are done in VRguide, and move directly in to VRflow to train the procedures themselves.
Required equipment for recording 360 degree video
Recording 360 degree videos is just as easy as recording regular 2D videos. At VRpilot, we use GoPro Max for the video and a Zoom H6 audio recorder for ambient and headset sound.
