On the first day, Queensland University of Technology student Jogen Phang suggested using virtual reality to train refugees for employment. Jogen didn't have a hackathon team, but really believed in his idea of helping new migrants to Australia with immersive technology. After a discussion with Amanda Alexander about production costs and content, they decided to use 360 videos to address daily life situations and problems. After mentor Steve Williams joined their team, Welcome 360 was a prize winner in the final day's pitch competition.
Since then Welcome 360 has created a range of educational and training videos related to housing, sport and employment skills. In 2018, Welcome 360 was a member of the elevate+ startup accelerator.
Safe, fun and realistic virtual training environments.
