In the Fall 2017 semester, Media Commons will open the Immersive Experiences Lab in our former Ag Sci & Industries location, Room 109.
What is the Immersive Experiences Lab?
The lab features a space designed specifically for 360° video creation and viewing. Virtual reality headsets, 360° video editing computers, and 360° cameras are housed in the lab. The lab also has a soundbooth for audio recording. The Immersive Experiences Lab is located in 109 Ag Sci & Industries Building.
What is 360° video?
360° video offers a new model for storytelling. 360° video is recorded in all directions at once, allowing viewers to have a more immersive viewing experience. Our specific focus is on instructing the creation of 360° video and making meaningful production decisions to create fully immersive learning experiences.
How does 360° video engage viewers?
This style of video is unique because it allows viewers to experience locations to which they wouldn’t normally have access. 360° video enables empathic storytelling between the storyteller and the audience viewing the video.
