And since I always love a challenge, I’m going to do just that:
The schedule of the event will be as follows:
Check your virtual coat into the cloakroom on site
Pick your hat (near the cloakroom or next to the stage)
There will be 30 minutes to get acquainted with the event space
Presentation to start at 6:30 PM prompt
Questions section to follow after the presentation
Warm down and general chat until closing.
Be nice to everyone
Please install the AltspaceVR client on your device/pc before the event and complete the tutorial (so it does not interfere with your experience)
Try not to “zoom” around the event while the presentation is on
Try not to block anyone else’s view (check your surroundings)
If you have a question, use the “ Raise a hand ” feature which will be on screen
If you have a complaint about the event or the conduct of another attendee, please use the AltspaceVR contact page to report it. https://help.altvr.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
We want everyone to have the best experience possible
What will be covered in the session
I’ll run through a presentation I put together based on the article
Go through step by step what you need to do to get up and running
Provide some short videos to demonstrate what you can do
(Only because this isn’t inception and I can’t have anyone walking around my mind)
And then a Q and A session until AltspaceVR lock the doors and kick us out
The session is going to be recorded and posted on one of my many YouTube channels. There is also the likelihood I’ll have to run this again for some other timezones if there is sufficient demand (more than 1 person 😀 )
Additionally, I have pulled in some favors and should have some AltspaceVR staff on hand for anything I can’t specifically answer.
What is not going to be covered
The event is focused on helping as many people as possible to get enough information to start their own online events due to the rising demand to transition physical events, so the event is for everyone wanting to achieve that goal.
Some advanced topics will be covered in future sessions and articles for the sake of time, so I will not be presenting:
Creating your own world
Creating your own AltspaceVR content
The AltspaceVR SDK
An in-depth overview of Slides.com
An in-depth overview of Google slides
But feel free to ask either myself or the AltspaceVR staff at the event questions after the show.
It’s time to get connected and experience connecting virtually
So come one and all, experience the fun of AltspaceVR and then take what you learn and create your own events, in whichever language suits you best.
Running an event in AltspaceVR an end to end guide
P.S. there will be a choice of hats to wear at the event.
