Congratulations to Henry Keiser, Director of XR Editorial at Yahoo, on launching the XR Producer Beginner Course. This project was developed with support from our Journalism 360 program, as one of 12 winners in the 2020 call for ideas to experiment with immersive storytelling techniques and define best practices for journalism. Designed for complete beginners, the course includes a nine-part video series and follow-along files for all lessons.
