Frequently Asked Questions about CenarioVR.
CenarioVR is an easy-to-use, online authoring tool for creating virtual reality simulations. It allows you to create engaging and intuitive interactions, through which learners can explore and participate in a captivating 360° virtual environment designed to expand their vision and promote learning, retention, and impact to your organization.
Yes. CenarioVR supports 4K video upload.
Always capture your source material in 4K resolution or higher. Remember that 4K resolution is split between multiple lenses and spread over a full 360 degrees, so 4K images and video only give you HD in each hemisphere. If the resulting video is too large or requires too much bandwidth (see the compression section below!), you can always lower the resolution to HD if the subject matter does not need it, but you can’t go the other way.

CenarioVR supports the use of MP4 video, MP3 audio, and PNG, JPG, SVG, GLB, and non-animated GIF images.
To create a scenario from scratch, you must upload at least one 360 video in MP4 format or an equirectangular image that's either PNG or JPG. Be sure to check out our CenarioVR Resources for a complete list of all the articles and videos regarding CenarioVR.
An equirectangular image is the term used to describe a spherical image that has been made into a flat object. For example a world map or 3D projection of a 360 degree viewpoint.
360 video and images can be gathered or captured in a variety of different ways. Common examples include renting or purchasing a 360 camera, downloading stock options from a website, or contracting a third party to shoot and produce the videos or images
Grading of questions within CenarioVR is automatic. When publishing you also have the option to include or not include a score. When publishing to SCORM, the package includes the necessary information to “complete” and score a scenario.

Yes. Public content is open to the general public and can be viewed at any time, even on the CenarioVR mobile app. Private content is available only via invitation to assigned viewers.
Publishing to CenarioVR Live and Mobile gives learners access to your scenario on the mobile app. You can also publish to HTML5 for website hosting. Or send it to xAPI, CMI5, or SCORM for hosting on a Learning Management System or Learning Record Store.
Content published to CenarioVR allows you to view it either on the Web, on a Mobile device, or on various headsets. There are native CenarioVR Apps for the following devices:
• Samsung Gear VR
• Oculus Go
• Oculus Quest –see note below
• Oculus Rift/Rift S
• HTC ViveFocus
• HTC Vive/VivePro – on the VivePort store, not the Steam store
• Pico Neo
• Pico G2/G24K
Note: Oculus does not allow Enterprise Apps on the Quest store. To install the CenarioVR app on Quest it will need to be sideloaded, or you need to utilize the Oculus for Business Platform (https://business.oculus.com/)
For all of the device types (except Quest), there is a free CenarioVR App on the store for the device. Just go to the store for the device, download the app, and log in using either an author or student ID. A student will only see content that is assigned to them, and public content if that is enabled for their organization. An author will also see assigned and public content, but will additionally have a tab for “My Scenarios” which will have any scenarios that the author has published. Scenarios under “My Scenarios” do not generate xAPI statements and won’t gather analytics, giving you a chance to test your output before distributing to students.
If the content has been published publically the scenario will be visible on Public Scenarios tab. Assigned content appears in the Assigned Scenario tab.
Depending on your plan you'll have access to the Analytics dashboard. Analytics can either be seen from a scenario or learner perspective. Data points include:
- Average amount of time spent
- Individual time spent
- Average interactions
- Individual interactions
- Individual scores
