Immersive Visualization and Storytelling is a 4-week summer workshop on immersive media tools and storytelling techniques. The class will address the emerging need for remote design education and provide students with a range of visualization techniques from photogrammetry to XR. Particular emphasis will be given to remote collaboration in spatial media, such as reviewing architectural models in virtual reality. At the end of the class, each student will produce a short immersive story. 

This class aims to equip students with an overall understanding of immersive media, which will prepare students for the Fall transmedia class offered by Virtual Experience Design Lab and Transmedia Storytelling Initiative (details will be announced in upcoming weeks)
