310 Willie Nelson Blvd Ste 1A

The University of Texas at Austin is at the forefront of developments in virtual reality. Experts from UT’s Moody College of Communication discuss their new VR initiatives, including a partnership with The Washington Post to create VR content, and the strategies, challenges and implications of creating fiction and non-fiction content using immersive media. Experts will also discuss their project, funded by the Knight Foundation, that has created an open-source virtual reality publishing framework for journalists who lack the engineering skills to publish their own VR content.
