Storytelling and Immersive Learning with 360 Video /VR Technologies and Gamification Techniques


Published on

This Powerpoint Presentation and 360 degree interactive game was developed for the Thaisim 2017 conference held in Bangkok. The aim of the presentation was to share some of the principles embedded in the European Commission Beaconing project which focuses on 21st century practices which leverage technology and gamification. The game pilot developed for this conference used a 360 degree video "treasure hunt" concept aimed at facilitating different learning objectives and demonstrating gamification principles. Part of this presentation will also be posted to YouTube in 360 degree format.
