The Digital Scholarship Lab needed a high-powered Mac for to use for editing 360-degree videos for the theater and students taking the JRN 360-degree video course that makes videos for the theater needed one, as well. There are plenty of PCs in the DSL, but no Apples that can render content in a reasonable amount of time. Also, we needed updated video documentation of how to create 360-degree content and then display it in the theater.
Team Bios: Judy Walgren in the Associate Director of the School of Journalism and teaches the RJN course to make 360-degree videos for the 360-degree theater and Meghan Kudzia is the the Interim Director for the DSL.
What are some of the successes?
Getting the funding and getting the documentation and tutorials going. We just got the equipment, so the real successes will be in the Fall when students return to the Macs and have the tutorials to use to learn.
