In this Image of the Week, Suntec makes their floor plans interactive with discoverable content. Hovering over each room will reveal text annotations that detail the technical specifications of each conference room. Viewers of this page can reveal square footage and capacity for Suntec's various event types. This is a user friendly user experience because it keeps the visual nature of the floor plans free from heavy text.

After creating your interactive masterpiece you want to share it as many places as possible. One option for sharing your ThingLink is with email. Unfortunately, many major email clients including Gmail and Yahoo do not allow embedded media due to security and spam concerns. Though you cannot embed your live Thinglink image, you can still incorporate it into your email campaign to drive click throughs back to your site.

We’re excited to announce that our new Teleport 360 Editor will be live for iPads today, and will be available for Android tablets soon. The Teleport 360 Editor gives educators and students the ability to create virtual 360° tours, audio tours, virtual spaces and lessons at school on their tablets. Existing apps such as Google Expeditions are great in letting students view VR lessons, but not create them. Students now become the content creator, and this promotes creativity, communication and critical thinking skills.
