Training workshops for teachers: 360° environments and podcasts

Would you like to kick off Summer with some fresh inspiration and skills? Online Hybrid Lab, together with Aalto Studios, hosts a two-part workshop day where the goal is to provide hands-on experiences about creating and using 360° environments as well as planning and producing a trial podcast episode, getting to know the whole life-cycle of podcast creation. You can choose to attend both or one of these workshops.
