Dozens of newsrooms have gotten into 360 video / virtual reality reporting since ONA15, so it’s time to explore the question of when and where it makes sense to use these technologies in our storytelling. We’ve assembled a group of leading producers to give us a 360-degree view of the most interesting journalism applications of VR to date.
