Abstract

© 2019, Associacao Iberica de Sistemas e Tecnologias de Informacao. All rights reserved. Immersive journalism is a form of storytelling that applies new narratives in relation with technologies for virtual, augmented or mixed realities, as well as 360º videos. It also grants the user an active role in the story (De la Peña et al. 2010). Therefore, this research, both explorative and descriptive, proposes a conceptual approach to immersive journalism through the analysis of 6 journalistic works. Using a methodology which includes both case study and comparative study methods, this work concludes that there are terminological gaps when it comes to differentiating interaction and immersion. Also, this study confirms the capacity of immersive experiences to offer new perspectives on the way we understand stories, with an increasing presence of gamification.
