Ever since the 2015 video documentary Clouds over Sidra boosted donations for UNICEF, 360-degree video has been dubbed an “empathy machine.” 360-degree video, also known as spherical video, is an immersive technology that enables the recording of video shots in all directions. This technology gives the viewer a complete 360-degree view and the ability to control the viewing direction simply by moving around the viewing device (usually, a mobile phone). In this workshop you will learn the basics of producing a 360-degree video and, after examining examples created recently by campus faculty, you will discuss ways to employ 360-degree video tools to improve subject-matter immersion and student engagement.
