2018 WW: EDU: How to put 3D on your website.

How to put 3D on your website

As 3D becomes more widely available, more web sites are including virtual 3D environments as a way to win more visitor engagement.  Virtual 3D can show visitors through a museum and even take a class on a virtual field trip that is supported by live conversations among students, teachers, and docents.

    Who would be interested?

    • Educators
    • Marketers
    • Advertisers
    • Website providers


    On the cheap (Smithsonian)

    • Given a physical place of interest:
    • Make full high resolution 360 degree images from various points.
    • Smithsonian Museum of Natural History
    • Let users move from point to point, scroll around, and zoom.
    • If you have enough points, it is a lot like walking around in the place.
    • This gives a first-person view (no avatar is seen).
    • The experience is asocial (there is no one to talk to).
    • The method offers a low-cost virtual visit that can adequately present the place.
    • It is not like an educational field trip.

    Virtual field trip

    Make a place of your own 

    • Import an OAR file from a virtual world.
    • (OAR files are copies of virtual worlds.)
    • Sources:  OAR files for download
    • (Check the license.)
    • OAR files can be imported into CybaLOUNGE or 3DWebWorldz
    • Contact the owner of the web-world for details on how to do this.
    • Import is not yet easy and may not be free.

    Maybe it should be a business
