Augmented reality and virtual reality are some of the most exciting new visual journalism tools, from $100 360-video cameras to high-end volumetric video capture and new augmented reality headsets.
At the Emerging Tech Lab at the Newmark Graduate School of Journalism, we help journalists and non-fiction storytellers apply these tools to their work. We also look at the future audiences and business models for these new communication platforms.
We’re focused on making sure that all journalists, including those from small news organizations such as members of the Center for Community and Ethnic Media, have access to learn about and work with these tools.
What we do:
- Workshops and trainings for graduate students, journalists, and with media organizations
- Immersive journalism meetups bringing together grad students and journalists to share and discuss their work
- Partnerships to support innovative immersive stories, collaborations between journalists, technologists and designers, and the development of best practices
- The VR Journalism academic course for Newmark J-School students
