Resources for immersive storytellers

We’re back from the inaugural Journalism 360 Unconference, the only event focused on the intersection of immersive technology meets news. We’ve pulled together a range of materials to guide and inspire you. Read takeaways from the event and explore stories, toolkits and other resources. Bonus: If you’re in New York City, visit Journalism 360’s immersive news exhibit at VR World through Aug. 31.

Complete the ONA community needs survey by Tuesday, Aug. 7, to contribute to our strategic plan and enter for a chance to win complimentary ONA18 registration or a 360-degree camera.
