360in360 Immersive Experiences Workshops
Future Events Listing


Season’s greetings! Welcome to the final GAETSS E-Newsletter. After 5 years of publishing regular updates on a whole spectrum of enabling technologies and gamification applications and events, I have decided to focus entirely on consumer 360 degree immersive technologies and associated applications. I will be starting a new e-newsletter next month whose theme will be based on a combination of 360 degree consumer technologies, storytelling and gamification.

If you are interested in subscribing to the 360in360 Immersive Experiences Newsletter, please contact me directly.

360in360 Immersive Experiences Workshops

In November, I launched the 360in360 Immersive Experiences Workshop at the Immersive Educations IED 2017 conference in Lucca, Italy. The workshop format is intended to be a practical hands-on illustration of how to combine 360 degree video, image and sound technologies with storytelling and gamification to develop 21st century learning skills and stimulate interest in digital culture and heritage.

The workshop demonstrates a number of different consumer 360 degree cameras with examples of their functionality, quality and strengths and weaknesses before engaging delegates in a team-based global quest game using 360 degree video and images to solve a challenge.

It also includes opportunities for delegates to develop their own virtual tours and quest challenges using off-the-shelf software.

One of the delegates at the workshop published and excellent review of IED 2017 at which includes details of my workshop and the quote :-

“David Wortley is the man! I learned so much from his workshop

In the New Year, I want to organise a series of national and international 360in360 Immersive Experience workshops with partners interested in co-hosting these events in possible “hackathon” formats which create legacy content of value to the delegates and their stakeholders.
