Immersive Xperiences (IX): Shifting Time, Space, Things & Learning (Creating 360° Virtual Tours) Online
We will consider how the affordances of simulations add value to today’s learning landscape to shift time and space to create authentic learning experiences to engage and motivate learners. Simulated environments using new genres of technology allow viewers to make choices and affect outcomes. Simulations are no longer restricted only to those who have access to expensive virtual labs.
We will use the Google Street View app and a smartphone to create 360° images. We will also construct 360° virtual tours using freely-available online software to add interactive elements including text, photos, video, and other information.
A smartphone or mobile device with the ability to install relevant apps/software is needed. A Cardboard-type VR viewer makes the experience more immersive but it is not required. A limited number of devices will be available to share with in-person attendees.
To explore a variety of freely available simulation tools beyond what will be shared in this series, check out the tools, tutorials, and resources in the simulation category in SUNY EmTechWIKI.
Note: This session continues the IX series offered previously. A (30-min.) video recording of the session offered January 6, 2022) provides a broad overview of various Xtended Reality (XR) concepts. Viewing this recording is optional and is not required to participate in this current 360° virtual tours workshop.
