WEBINAR: From Hype to Here: Virtual Reality Becomes Actual Reality


Event Details

DATE: Wednesday, April 26, 2017
TIME: 12:00pm EDT


This webinar will be conducted by Robert Hernandez, Associate Professor of Professional Practice at USC Annenberg. 

In this hands-on session, we’ll immerse ourselves in the previously intimidating world of virtual reality, learn how to leverage this obtainable technology in marketing travel tourism, and how to engage existing and prospective consumers -- all in a way that fits your annual budget.

Robert Hernandez, aka WebJournalist, has made a name for himself as a journalist of the Web, not just on the Web. His primary focus is exploring and developing the intersection of technology and journalism – to empower people, inform reporting and storytelling, engage community, improve distribution and, whenever possible, enhance revenue. He is an Associate Professor of Professional Practice at USC Annenberg, but he’s not an academic… he’s more of a “hackademic” and specializes in “MacGyvering” Web journalism solutions. He connects dots and people. He has worked for seattletimes.com, SFGate.com, eXaminer.com, La Prensa Gráfica, among others.

Hernandez is also the co-founder of #wjchat and co-creator of the Diversify Journalism Project. His most recent work includes Augmented Reality, Wearables/Google Glass and Virtual Reality — he and his students produce VR experiences under their brand: JOVRNALISM. Their work can be seen in The New York Times, NPR and in their own iOS/Android app. He has served on boards that have included Chicas Poderosas, InquireFirst and the Online News Association. He is a Journalism 360 ambassador and a lifetime member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists. He is the recipient of SPJ’s 2015 Distinguished Teaching in Journalism Award. He has made it to imgur’s front page more than once.
