Projects from Dr. Nick
Dr. Nichols took part in a Fan Panel for Turner Classic Movies and Ball State University's course:
50 Years of Hitchcock.
Here he discusses some aspects of Alfred Hitchcock's use of available technologies to create a new literacy in the meta-medium of motion pictures. Dr. Nick uses examples such as these to encourage students toward discovery and invention in the ever-shifting world of new media communications.
Projects from Students
Students from Dr. Nichols' Digital Literacies II class shot and produced a 3D-360 Virtual Campus Tour for Limestone College.
Brandon Rivera, Alexis Harris and Shalyn Dougherty shot spherical (3D-360) imagery with VR cameras, and built the navigational elements using theViewer software. The Virtual Campus Tour 1.0 is now hosted on the College Maps website, and can be viewed using a web browser, smartphones, or VR headsets. (The tour has been tested optimized for Google Cardboard and GearVR headsets.)
