Description

AUGMENTED REALITY (AR) FOR JOURNALISM

with Matt MacVey

Enhance news content with this new technology

Class meets Wednesday, February 27 from 6:30 to 8 pm

The cost for this workshop is $25

Move over, Virtual Reality. Newsrooms are now turning their attention to Augmented Reality (AR) journalism, the addition of an information layer or 3D objects on top of content, visible through a phone app. Think Pokemon Go for news. It’s certainly the direction the tech industry is going -Apple, Facebook, Alphabet and Snapchat have all launched tools that give access to augmented reality to millions of consumers.

In this hands-on workshop we'll try out AR projects from different news organizations, see how to get started and look at what might be coming next. We'll look at tools including Blippar, ARKit, ARCore and WebAR.


What to Bring: Attendees should bring their own smartphones to explore projects together.


Level: Beginner
