With immersive virtual reality (VR) technology, new ways for engaging and supporting technology-enhanced learning practice have emerged. The new medium has empowered people from across different industries to build content which ranged from mental health, journalism, human rights activist, art and humanities, to construction, science, manufacturing and others.
This workshop will bring particular focus to 360 immersive videos and people will get the opportunity to work in group building their first 360 immersive video project. You will develop a good understanding of the technology and how to tap into its capabilities as well as get hands-on experience filming and editing 360 VR videos.
This course will be delivered by Suhad Aljundi, future technologies developer at Jisc.
