Project Abstract

Nitish's major research paper (MRP) will examine the potential use of 360 degree video for daily news production. Over the years, journalism has seen the introduction of new mediums and technology. With research from existing literature, news articles as well as case studies, his MRP will serve as an analysis in order to better understand how the introduction of 360-degree videos might change the approach and practice of digital journalism. Nitish's paper will identify unique challenges and successes that 360-degree video journalism might have from a technical, ethical and psychological point of view as facets can ultimately influence the reporter’s decision making and their ability to properly and effectively tell stories.
