eLearning DevCon 2011 virtual tour

We attended a great eLearning Devcon this year, and met lots of smart and very nice people. The number of participants keeps going up with appr. 370 of us this year.

We had to presentations and one workshop. Lots of work, but also great fun. My presentation was on using photographic techniques in your e-learning. My presentation Using Photographic Techniques in Your eLearning Courses is available here http://t.co/976y1d2

R1 NEX bundleWhile I was in Salt Lake City I decided to invest in an new panorama kit. I wanted a smaller an lighter set-up than the one I have now. I am very pleased with my Nodalninja pano head so I looked at what they had to offer. Guess what – they have a sweet bundle with their R1, Rokinion 8mm and a Sony NEX-5. I took it out for a spin on our last night at the university Campus.

In creating an virtual tour of the campus you could show presenters, participants and vendors the venue. Presenters could visit the rooms where their presentations are scheduled, see what equipmets is available etc. I only got to take four panos, but take a look:  http://ihodet.no/eldc2011/  Below is a stitched image from the tour.

I took 4 shots around and 1 up. Only 5 images for one 360×180 panorama. The panoramas where then stitched with Autopano Giga and the virtual tour built with Panotour Pro both from http://kolor.com/

Since all of these tours are in Flash and/or HTML5 they can easily be embedded in your elearning courses, but more on that in a later post.
