video 360 faculty assessment

Jones, C., Watkins, F., Williams, J., Lambros, A., Callahan, K., Lawlor, J., … Atkinson, H. (2019). A 360-degree assessment of teaching effectiveness using a structured-videorecorded observed teaching exercise for faculty development. Medical Education Online24(1), 1596708. https://doi.org/10.1080/10872981.2019.1596708

enable faculty to receive a detailed 360-degree assessment of their teaching

The faculty in Gerontology and Geriatric Medicine at Wake Forest School of Medicine (WFSM) saw an opportunity to incorporate a focused teaching practicum for faculty within a multiple-specialty faculty development program. 360-degree assessments involve a combination of feedback from subordinates, colleagues and superiors. 360-degree feedback has been considered an essential tool in transformational leadership because the evaluation process avoids bias through diversity of viewpoints represented, and it is rarely applied to teaching assessments. Specifically, we designed a teaching practicum using a Videorecorded Observed Teaching Exercise (VOTE) to provide self-, peer- and learner assessments of teaching

Our design of videorecorded microteaching sessions embedded into a faculty development program presents a feasible, well-received model to provide faculty development in teaching and a robust 360-degree assessment of teaching skills.

Two strengths of our program are that it is feasible and reproducible.

In addition, costs for these sessions were low. VOTE video capture costs ranged from $45 – $90 per session depending on the audiovisual capacity of the room used for recording. Costs for this activity included an audiovisual technician who performed the room setup and videorecording. However, a handheld videorecorder or mobile device could be used for these sessions as well.

360 video issues

Issues with displaying 360 video on mobiles and regular computers

this is time sensitive information; it can change at any moment. Please enter in the comment section your most recent findings and I will update the list

Finding:
360 video does not display properly in Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. The only known browser to display properly is Google Chrome.
Reason:
360 video needs HMTL5 Player and does not play on the Flash platform
Sources:
Web support isn’t quite so good for a couple of reasons. One is that only certain web browsers support such content. Chrome and Opera are compatible, for example, whilst Safari and Firefox are not.
Arguably the best way to experience YouTube’s 360-degree content, however, is through Google Cardboard.
Facebook is the other major portal through which 360-degree video content can be enjoyed, though it came to the game far later than Google.
Unlike Google’s YouTube implementation, however, there’s no Google Cardboard support on the VR side. Rather, Facebook recently opened out support to Samsung’s Gear VR ahead of the inevitable support from its own Oculus Rift when that launches early in 2016.

360° video only works when you use the HTML5 player. Currently it’s available on Android devices and Chrome browsers. Go here –> http://youtube.com/html5 to check if you’re using the HTML5 player.

Conclusion/Resolutions:
– make sure desktop/laptop has installed Google Chrome browser. – if instructor’s station and you cannot and/or don’t have time to install, Chrome, bring your own laptop
– if possible, identify which of the students’ phones are displaying correctly (HTML5) 360 video and panorama and collaborate with students to use their phones and demonstrate to other students the Google Cardbox experience.

first snow in 360

Well, technically not the first for 2016, but certainly beautiful:

Best experience with VR goggles: Google Cardbox, HTC Vive etc. (please ask for more info if needed). If you have goggles, choose “VR Mode” (1), if viewing on your computing device (desktop, laptop, smart phone, tablet) and/or don’t have goggles, choose “Panorama Mode” (2)

Virtual Reality to Drive Rapid Adoption of 360 Degree Cameras

By David Nagel

https://campustechnology.com/articles/2016/08/31/virtual-reality-to-drive-rapid-adoption-of-360-degree-cameras.aspx

VR’s applications for education have been much lauded, and tech heavyweights have begun investing in the technology, in part to both enable and capitalize on educational opportunities. Google, for example, has been offering its low-cost Google Cardboard kits, which, coupled with the Google Expeditions service, provides VR-based educational experiences and learning activities.

according to market research firm ABI Research, some 6 million consumer and prosumer cameras are expected to ship by 2021. (That’s out of a total of 70 million VR devices that are forecast to ship by then.)

 

VR poultry and cows

Welcome to the Mootrix. 🐮⁠ ⁠ In a bid to get more and better milk out of their cows, Russian farmers have taken to strapping specially-modified virtual reality headsets on their cows’ heads and giving them relaxing, pleasant virtual experiences.⁠ ⁠ It’s not clear whether the milk improved as a result, but the cows seemed happier while looking at a VR field than they were while faced with the grim reality that they were trapped in a crowded farm.⁠ ⁠ And if that doesn’t work, maybe the farmers could try letting the cows roam around an actual field. Tap the link in our bio to read this and more on The Byte.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #farming #farm #animals #animal #cows #nature #technology #tech #AI #virtualreality #VR #VRheadset #animalrights #futuresociety #Russia #farmers #agriculture #farmlife #farmer #food #sustainability #cattle #future #futurism
