Introduction to project
The Supporting Educators’ Pedagogical Activities with 360 video project (SEPA360) 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. It features university partners from five different European countries and 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. Ultimately we aim to convince university decision-makers to implement the project’s software, resources and philosophy into their own learning and teaching infrastructure to enhance the learning experiences of students across a diverse range of contexts such as field trips, placements, work experiences, and heritage visits to name but a few.
