On Thursday 31 March 2022 the Yorkshire and Humber Institute of Technology (YHIoT) 360 Interactive Video Project champions came to together in person, for the first time, at the University of Hull in the YHIoT Centre in the Nidd Building to take forward practice in the use of the technologies of cameras and apps to develop 360 interactive videos, for use in learning, teaching and assessment.  This is a joint project linked with the Erasmus SEPA 360 project led by Professor Kevin Burden of the Department of Education in FACE and including Universities in Hasselt - Belgium, Vienna, Thessaloniki and Florence.

YHIoT partners include Askham Bryan College, Bishop Burton College, Craven College, East Riding College, Selby College, Scarborough TEC, York College, York St John University and the University of Hull.

Partners were able to share experiences in developing their uses of the technologies in their own college and to describe their current video project, as well as relate experiences and issues in the use of equipment on the day.  Part of the session included trouble shooting, where those who had experimented more widely were able to provide useful tips to enable optimum use of the technologies.  A tutorial on the use of the Qoocam camera was provided following requests for support.

The 360 cameras and related equipment for each of the seven partner colleges and the two universities has been funded through the Yorkshire and Humber Institute of Technology.

A short video presentation provided through the University of Vienna demonstrated how to upload videos onto the Vivista Site, both to store videos and eventually to submit them for publication.  The use of the Vivista Editor (and export) and Vivista player was discussed including the insertion of labels/links into the video. 

Colleagues provided ideas on what they would want to learn and practice in a further session day on 26 May.  An online session with the SEPA 360 Project Vivista developers is also planned for partners to share their experiences of using Vivista and how they have resolved issues.

Despite weather issues, which had affected travel, colleagues agreed that meeting up, collaborating and sharing experiences had made for a very informative, useful and enjoyable day.

“A problem shared is a problem solved! This was the ethos of this workshop which helped everyone to maximise the opportunities brought by this technology. We saw the benefits of getting all the Institute of Technology partners together to share their understanding and utilise this equipment effectively for the benefit of students”.
