Everything news professionals need to know now about immersive storytelling and XR technologies

Demystifying AR/VR/XR

Building and best practise for VR

The business of VR

Virtual Reality (VR) has been touted as the next big thing for media. Augmented Reality (AR) is more prevalent and can reach more users. As headsets and equipment are getting cheaper — 360-degree cameras are less than the price of an iPhone — and tech companies are investing more in extended reality (XR), what are the opportunities for journalism and for media companies?

In this free six-part Webinar series from INMA and the Meta Journalism Project, we speak with experts in immersive media to help us truly understand what it is, how we get started, how to report on it, and where the business opportunities lie.

This series is designed for newsrooms interested in using and covering immersive experiences. This series is designed for news professionals and journalists interested in using and covering immersive experiences.
