Library Technology Conference 2018


Published on

The NMC New Horizon Report 2017 predicts rapid application of Video360 in K12. Millennials are leaving college, Gen Z students are our next patrons. We need to meet our new students on “their playground.” A collaboration by a librarian and VR specialist is testing the opportunities to apply 360 degree movies and VR in academic library orientation. The team seeks to bank on the inheriting interest of young patrons toward these technologies and their inextricable part of a rapidly becoming traditional gaming environment.

  4. 4. VR, MR and 360 media in academia  NMC New Horizon Report 2017 for Higher education education-edition/ Adaptive Learning Technologies, Mobile Learning, IoT, Next-Gen LMS, Artificial Intelligence  Similar recommendations in the K12 version: edition/  And the library edition: report-2017-library-edition/ Big Data, Digital Scholarship Technologies, Library Services Platforms, Online Identity, Artificial Intelligence, IoT
  5. 5. What are VR/AR/MR (
  6. 6. 360° video  As a supplement, if not replacement of the existing lecture-type or instructor-guided face-to-face library orientations. Based on current learning constructivist theories, it is believed that a self-paced, individual option for students to acquire information on their own and build knowledge, either on their own or through interaction with peers, will result in better learning, whereas the instructor acts as a facilitator, rather than as a lecturer.

  7. 7. Cameras  There is a wide range of cameras capable of capturing 360° media, and, respectively, a wide range of prices. Consumer level cameras, many of which require a smart phone, for either control or processing, start at 100 dollars or less. "Prosumer' level cameras run about 900 dollars, and professional cameras start at 10,000 dollars, whereas some of them can be priced much higher. 
  8. 8. Cameras (continue)  The Vuze, by Humaneyes (pictured right) is the top end of consumer cameras. It runs around 900 dollars and is capable of capturing 360° media in 3D stereo as well. 
  9. 9. Implementation of VR/AR/MR and 360 media  Approaching this promising technology in a scalable manner is preferable as with other educational technologies. Dare financial times are only one of the reasons to seek gradual expansion of VR and AR. Factors such as inclination of project’s organizers and audience to accept a fairly radical change in their relationship to technology as well as acceptance of new methodology for learning and teaching are only few to begin with. 
