This type of interaction can be majorly used for learning and training purpose where learner can be immersed with real time interactions so that to retain the knowledge for a longer period. Instead of a simple text and image presentation you can give learner zoom-in interaction option to view the image in detail especially when the learner is viewing the course in mobile.

This interaction we have developed for one of our clients, listed on the top 500 fortune oil and gas pipeline construction. Our eLearning courses built with real images so to habituate the environment of the plant before they board in their roles and have given real time scenarios and the issues that they are going to face in the field with the help of subject matter experts. For instance, one of our elearning courses have had the zoom-interaction where learner need to identify the crack or leakage in the pipeline that may cause serious damage in the plant.
