Date and time: Feb. 5, 2019, 2-3:30 pm
Location: FCE (PL 4005)

Zoom link: https://csusb.zoom.us/j/525042164

Learning objectives

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to: 

  1. Reflect on the pedagogical benefits of using 360-degree videos in their classes
  2. Identify situations when 360-degree instructional materials or assignments improve student engagement
  3. Describe and implement the production process needed to create 360-degree videos

Workshop description

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. 

Primary audience

Any instructor who is considering introducing video assignments in his or her classes (no prior technical knowledge needed)
