Learning is 'Virtually' Everywhere!

Edinburgh, 28 October 2016 from 10:00 to 16:00

Full Virtual Reality is more than 360 video; VR contains digitally enhanced elements to ensure the viewer is within a fully immersive and interactive scenario. Some of the benefits of VR Learning can be the learner’s experience is ‘Active’ rather than a ‘Passive’ experience and Immersive experience means no distractions… anyone you know who can benefit from this type of learning opportunity?

Within the tech world, VR is one of the biggest technologies which will make an impact on our future viewing; some say an even bigger leap than back when audiences were introduced to sound in movies (The Jazz Singer, released in October 1927).

This workshop, delivered by Marc Forrester, 360 Pod, provides a trip across the different threads of VR/AR and MR.

The workshop will cover:

  • Immersive Virtual Reality and the different possibilities that this technology offers, as well as recommendations to consider before use.
  • Experiment with different educational and entertainment apps with Virtual Reality and other immersive 360 degrees’ audio-visual sceneries.
  • Practice basic 360 degrees’ photographic capture with your own smartphone device for viewing and to evaluate educational dynamics around this.
  • Create your own low-cost DIY gadget to experience Immersive Virtual Reality in first person from your mobile device.

Though this is an introductory course, it is considered a technical workshop.

Price: £50 includes full day workshop, lunch and cardboard VR goggles to make and take away
