IED online course

owlscapes was heavily involved in the design and development of this online staff training course.

This major project was completed recently and features drag and drop exercises that can be interacted with via the virtual tour itself. It was produced in collaboration with the Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) in Madrid, and has been highly successful in familiarising staff with their future working environment – as well as the brand’s identity. Floorplans are used as an additional navigation tool, and enable learners to carry out the exercises in a non-prescribed order. Information ‘hotspots’, or points, lead to text input, multi-choice questions and the creation of an interactive visual arrangement. Once learners are satisfied with their responses, a PDF is generated and sent to the course tutor for evaluation. The course was fully integrated with Moodle, and as with all of our tours, touchscreen friendly for comfortable use on iPads and other tablets.

Visit Pelayo virtual tour

Map-based virtual tour of the independent shops and boutiques around the Calle Pelayo area of Madrid.

This tour was designed to promote local shops in the Chueca district of Spain’s cosmopolitan capital. Pre-dating Google’s own Business Photos, a map view can be overlaid to help visit a select range of retail businesses – and without losing the reference point provided by the cobbles of the street outside. The tour can be easily marketed virally through Twitter and Facebook share buttons.

San Jose 360º

This virtual tour produced in collaboration with 24 studio, is based entirely on 3D renders.

It is also possible to create tours in 360º from architectural renders before construction has even begun. This is attractive to potential property buyers, and provides them with the interaction that a video doesn’t. In this example, elaborate floorplans are also used to improve navigation through the seven different rooms and spaces.
