Supporting Educators' Pedagogical Activities with 360 Video

About SEPA360 About VIVISTA Deliverables


The SEPA360 project includes university partners from five European countries including the UK (coordinating partner), Belgium, Austria, Italy and Greece. The SEPA360 project – Supporting Educators’ Pedagogical Activities with 360 video – is a European funded, Erasmus+ project for lectures, researchers and universities working, or looking to engage with the learning opportunities brought about by innovative 360 video cameras. The project aims to demonstrate how the effective use of 360 video can support and enhance the learning of university students by immersing them in real life video scenarios that they can manipulate to view as if they were actually there. The partners are developing a unique interactive platform for these video scenarios that will allow lecturers to embed hotspots, hyperlinks and other interactive media within the 360 video and will also track their student’s interactions and movements through these scenarios.

Vivista 360° Video Editor & Player

Vivista is a 360° video editor and player being developed as an open source software project at the PXL Hasselt. It enables users to enhance 360° video with text, images or videos, as well as allows users to integrate interactive components such as multiple choice questions, area highlights and more. In the course of the SEPA360 project, Vivista will be further developed with a focus on user-oriented features and educational scenarios which can be implemented with Vivista.

Currently the software is in a beta mode constantly being updated.
