Wednesdays at the Center

This panel will describe what 360 video is and how it's recorded, including some of the cameras you can use to capture an immersive experience to share a vacation memory or a family event. You will also learn about a project funded by the Duke Digital Initiative (DDI) and executed with the support of AMES, CIT and OIT and Duke Engage in Lebanon and Jordan exploring the use of 360 video in teaching and learning Arabic at Duke. 360 video captures scenery and action from all sides and, in some cases, from above and below, too! For an example, watch this video of the Duke class of 2016 climb to the top of Duke Chapel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40z5qhq2Hek&t=40s

This event is presented by the John Hope Franklin Center. A light lunch will be served. Parking is available in nearby Trent Rd. and Erwin Rd. parking decks. The series provides 1-hour parking vouchers to guests.
