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.
