Christoph Neubauer still uses the 3D model he created to illustrate his lectures. He walks through his 3D models, using a game engine, and comments continue on what the audience sees. In these lively lectures, various thematic priorities can be presented and discussed. Either historical events are in the lecture's foreground. But the focus could again be on the architectural features of the buildings illustrated. Because Christoph Neubauer is interacting with the 3D model in real time, he can respond to the audience's questions. For example, we can visit again special places in order to make further minutiae visible. Because the virtual tour is not pre-determined, each of the lectures is rare. This is because, in each lecture, Christoph Neubauer moves a little differently through the 3D model. The time of day indicated or other details of the 3D models can further change occasionally. This means that each lecture is unique and cannot be repeated.
Livestream - Lecture
The live lectures can also be transmitted to a lecture room via live stream. This is particularly useful if the lectures are to take place in schools or universities. Christoph Neubauer comments live on the image to be seen. However, as in the classic lectures, he can continue to respond to questions from the audience. The 3D model is then walked by Neubauer virtually in such a way that the places that are of particular interest to the audience can be seen in different perspectives through the virtual camera.
Walking a 3D model in real time - A new tool for universities
Historians and other selected lecturers can use Christoph Neubauer's 3D model to present their findings to their audience. The 3D model is therefore a new opportunity for lecturers at a university, for example, to convey their research results to their students in a particularly vivid manner. The model can be used as a visual illustration within the lecture. However, it can also be an active tool in scientific research work, since it was created with a high scientific standard. For example, it can be used to confirm or refute reports and claims made by contemporary witnesses, and to describe events that are said to have taken place in the Reich Chancellery. With the 3D model created for this project, scientists have a new tool in their hands that can be used for the research area of history and its subgroups, politics, art, architecture and civil engineering.
Christoph Neubauer offers the lectures in German or English language.
