360 Degree Videos!

Hello!

For those of you that didn't know yet, for the past 6 months or so Youtube has the ability to play 360 degree videos!  To view them on your device...

1. Make sure you are using Google Chrome (just seems to work best).  

2. Once the video starts playing, you can click and drag your mouse around the video to view everything it contains (think of it as a Google Maps Street View image).  

Here's a sample: 

Click and drag around the video to view it's awesomeness!  


Here's another one (for the Larry Jesses of the world!):


The best part is, we actually have a camera here in Eminence that can record 360 videos as well!  We used it last year to capture a quick sample of our 2nd Grade Career Day in the gym.


If you're interested in learning how to use it in your classes, let me know and I can show you how it works.  It's quite cool!

More soon... including how this all can work on Google Cardboard!

Cheers!
