New Class on Virtual Reality Storytelling

Students at the School of Journalism and Media are getting their first taste of virtual reality in David Stephenson’s new VR Storytelling class this spring. As an introduction to the art of virtual storytelling, students joined a demonstration of the HTC Vive VR headset and experienced augmented reality (AR) during a tour at the Computer Science’s Visualization Center. The class will also participate in a live webcast with the head of VR and VR photojournalist Jack Gruber at USA Today before they begin to tackle producing their own 360-degree videos in February.
