ACU at home in Germany

This week ACU opens a new home base for students studying in Leipzig, Germany. You’ll hear more about the exciting history and location of this property in the future, but we wanted to give you a first look. The following 360 photos and video were taken during a digital storytelling workshop with Study Abroad students last spring, so the facility has already changed a lot but this will give you a virtual visit to the new ACU villa.

Germany is an exciting place to study right now, with dynamic modern cities like Berlin and Leipzig, and historical centers like the city of Wittenberg, where Martin Luther published his 95 Theses 500 years ago this month. The ACU in Germany 360 video gave us a chance to explore a little more of what immersive experiences can do.

The videos are best viewed in a Chrome browser or using the Vimeo app on a smartphone or tablet. All video was shot on a Nikon Keymission 360 4K camera that uses two fish-eye lenses pointing opposite directions and then stitches the two together. Come see us in the Learning Studio if you’re interested in shooting some 360 video of your own!
