From Europe to South-East Asia: Educational Technology Talk on 360°-Video
Last week (01. September 2021) we were invited to talk about SEPA360 and 360°-video in higher education. The educational talk was organized and hosted by the Centre for Innovative Delivery & Learning Development from UiTM (Malaysia). Michael S. Feurstein (WU Vienna), Michaël Empsen (PXL Hasselt) and Vassilis Barkoukis (AUT) presented the SEPA360 Project, gave an introduction to 360°-video technology and how to get started as an educator and demonstrated the Vivista 360°-video editor.

It was a fruitful discussion with many interesting questions concerning how to integrate and adapt 360°-video in an educational setting. Vivista was well received and we could showcase and demonstrate the software to more than 170 viewers from south-east Asia.

Vassilis Barkoukis (University of Thessaloniki) on how to apply 360°-video-based learning to the learning field.
It was a great opportunity to present SEPA360 to a wider international audience. The area of 360°-video-based learning has great potential and from the discussion with educators from Malaysia it was clear that many future scenarios are still in the making.
