Description

What happens when you arrive early for a Mexican fiesta? In busuu’s Spanish Learning Game you arrive at a beautiful Mexican hacienda, are greeted by a telepresence robot, taught to speak some Spanish and asked to help the delightfully odd Mendoza family to get ready for the party!

What Works Well

This is a great example of mixing 360° video with interactive VR content.

Level of Interactivity

What does this mean?

The Level of Interactivity indicates how many interactive features an experience has.

For instance, a Level 1 would be a more passive experience where you will be able to look around freely, but you will not be triggering or interacting with things in the environment.  A Level 2 will provide some level of interactivity but only very basically, such as being able to move between different scenes in the experience. A Level 3 will start to incorporate some more complex interactions using a remote or controller to trigger things within the scenes. A Level 4 would be a fully interactive experience but something you are still guided through. Finally, a Level 5 would be a fully interactive experience that gives you complete control of how to use it.
