Yahoo TV Immersive Academy

Committed to providing comprehensive AR/VR/XR immersive experiences and encouraging the younger generations to learn immersive technologies, Yahoo Taiwan initiated the “Yahoo TV Immersive Academy” and
established the government-industry-university-institute alliance by integrating internal and external resources, collaborating with the government institution and nine industry experts and academic influencers who specialize in the immersive technology field to create synergy.

By leveraging Yahoo’s experiences in immersive technologies, Yahoo TV Immersive Academy invited local partners as speakers to share industry trends. Eight series of online courses exhibiting diverse immersive contents and technologies applied in the entertainment, education, media, culture, and art industries were launched. The innovative technologies included AR, VR, XR, virtual YouTuber, facial and motion capture, somatosensory entertainment, remote production, and collaboration, and volumetrix.

Yahoo TV Immersive Academy also launched the first government-issued immersive experience e-certification in Taiwan to raise public awareness and cultivate local talents.
