NEWS: Award-winning designer, Kate Nicholls will be sharing the findings of a year-long project on the learning applications of interactive 360° video and virtual reality (VR) at Europe’s biggest learning technologies event.
Head of Learning Innovation at leading learning company, Sponge UK, Kate Nicholls is delivering a seminar at Learning Technologies 2017 (London Olympia, February 1-2) about her exploratory work with immersive technologies.
Kate, who was named Learning Technologies Designer of the Year at the Learning Technologies Awards in November 2016, said:
“My starting point for the project was a question: Can 360° content aid learning, and if so, how? With my team at Sponge, I’ve spent 12 months playing with this technology and assessing the possible learning applications. By combining elearning tools with the latest 360° filming techniques, we’ve been able to add an interactive layer to 360° video. I’m looking forward to sharing our discoveries at Learning Technologies and explaining how 360° experiences are becoming more accessible for organisations.”
Kate’s talk, Say hello to interactive 360 video: what it is and when to use it, takes place in Theatre 5 in the main exhibition hall on Wednesday, February 1 from 12.30-13.00pm.
The session will feature a live demonstration of interactive 360° video for desktop along with a VR cardboard version. People attending the seminar will learn:
- How to align interactive 360° video to real world challenges
- What to consider when implementing interactive 360° video
- How learning interactions are enhanced by interactive 360°
- How to move from interactive 360° video to VR
There’s also a chance for people to take a closer look at interactive 360° video and experience the content for themselves using a VR headset at Sponge UK’s stand at location C10 in the main exhibition hall.
More than 7,500 L&D and HR professionals are due to attend this year’s Learning Technologies, which is the largest and most popular event of its kind in Europe.
