    WondaVR facilitates the development of immersive role playing games, the annotation of 360 photos and video with hotspots, and to create virtual product demonstrations. Because it is desktop rather than browser-based, content can be created that uses your institution's custom fonts for more seamless branding. WondaVR has three education pricing levels -- $79 annual subscription for students, $349 per year for teachers, and $3,449 for an annual campus subscription with 50 installations. This software is something you download, rather than use in the cloud.

    Viar360 is the choice of a number of universities for the development of VR lessons that can be integrated in to existing VLE/LMS. It can be used to create interactive stories with more than one option for students to choose, and visual editors to facilitate the development of branching narratives. Viar360 includes built-in analytics to facilitate assessment and development.

    SeekBeak is another easy to use cloud-based 360 image editor (with video editing in beta) that allows the addition of interactive content. The tags aren't quite as fancy as ThingLink's, but Seek Beak tags can include text, which makes it very clear to the user what would be triggered by each tag. Tags can trigger embedded video, text, links to other web sites, documents, spatial audio recordings, and transitions into other 360 scenes. Selling points for SeekBeak include mobile/VR readiness and robust reporting and metrics, including A/B testing of hotspots and CSV file export of clicks, interaction time, user location, social media shares, browser and device data. Tags include a phone icon that will initiate a phone call or Facetime or Skype session to the number of your choice. Pricing ranges from free to $50 per month to custom pricing for heavy users who need more than 10GB of storage.
