Virtual 360 Tour: Choose An Icon

slwendorf's picture

I love the Virtual 360 Tour for an activity we are developing with various content types appearing throughout the tour (video, images, text, audio, questions). 

If you could enable an option to select an icon (video icon, image icon, text icon, audio icon, quiz icon, etc.) rather than just the blue plus sign, so we can add hotspots with different types of icons, that would be so much appreciated. This would differentiate the type of content that would appear to the student when they click around. 

Also, enabling a way to input an H5P Course Presentation as a hotspot item would change my life and open up SO many possibilities for our students and faculty. 

Thank you!

Hi Sarah,

Thank you for contributing your ideas on how to make H5P better! We’re now working on something called the H5P supporter program allowing the H5P community to vote for and fund the top voted H5P features. Also there are developers in the community who every now and then works on a feature they find interesting or useful.


Greetings community

I agree with other comments seen here that the Virtual Tour 360 tool really needs different icons for different types of pop-up content. At the very least, video content should get a different icon to image pop-ups. Videos are such high value content, and there is a risk that my users will miss them.

Another useful feature would be if icons could get a tick after the user has clicked on them. That would be very helpful to users who need to make sure they click all the available pop-up content in a tour (eg to verify a student's competion of the learning module). Even better if the object could report something like "You have accessed __ of __ items" to the user.

Ideally us content authors would be able to upload our own artwork for different types of hot spot icons, including a 'ticked' version, then assign these to hot spots at author-time.

Thanks, btw I love the Virtual Tour 360 editor, it is an incredibly useful training tool.


I totally agree with this. Do we know if there is a way yet?

I would also like to vote for this feature. I notice that you can do this on the Images Hotspots feature. Wondering if it would be an easy thing to add to the Virtual tours 360??  It would be really nice to be able to upload custom icons. For example, if I have a hotspot with a short history text, it would be cool to have a history related icon. Or a music icon for an embedded song.  I could see many uses for this! :)
