Hosting exciting online events has never been more important
In recent years we have all become very familiar meeting online and attending webinars, online events and online training. What’s key now is to make every virtual experience appealing and exciting for attendees. Attendees now expect more and spending time creating exciting experiences has many benefits, as it will not only encourage greater attendance but will also improve engagement of those who do attend.
Online training has been proven to be a highly effective way to educate, and we’ve recently looked at some simple ways to incorporate interactivity into online training. With the wide variety of online learning and presentation solutions available on the market today, it’s important to consider the options available and make the best of the features available.
Here we take this a step further to see what other key features can be included in your next online experience to make it truly memorable and exciting! No more boring webinars, e-Learning, training or virtual meetings here!
How your online experience can stand out from the crowd
Create an environment of your choice
360 immersive environments can be created in any setting; the only limitation is your imagination. Space, a jungle, underwater, or a more conventional conference setting are all well within the realms of possibility when it comes to online learning and virtual experiences. Create an environment that will allow your attendees’ interest to be sparked from the moment they log in. All you have to do is work out what that might be, and then it can be built to suit.
Although we have a full collection of presentation, meeting and webinar tools available within our 360 virtual platform, we recognise that it’s important to also be adaptable with other systems. This enables existing organisational processes to integrate, track and report in a new interactive immersive way.
An example? Many of our clients work with LMS platforms, we support integration of any SCORM files created in Rise or other LMS systems. Simply create your learning programmes and import into your 360 immersive experience, building a truly memorable and engaging learning journey.
Let attendees explore the environment at their own pace
The beauty of using both 3D and immersive 360 virtual environments for online experiences is that the attendees feel instantly empowered. They won’t simply sit there and be spoken to but will become active learners who follow their own path.
Attendees can consume the content within the environment in a way that works for them. Think back to school or university and imagine your teacher allowing you the free rein to absorb your learning in a way that is highly personal. It’s unsurprising that it’s a phenomenally powerful way of increasing engagement.
Classroom feature: Video chat within a virtual environment
Video chat and virtual environments are both excellent features, and now they can be integrated simultaneously using the Procreation Classroom feature.
While participating in a Virtual Event or online experience, attendees can now take part in video chat with their teacher/host/presenter, all while exploring a virtual environment at their own pace. Tutors can guide learners through training modules, demonstrate products and direct learning teams all from within the virtual environment.
An example? Take an online learning event. Presenters can speak, via video to their class, live, with slides and videos, whilst showing them around the environment. Attendees can then explore this environment themselves, asking questions as they navigate through. This new feature opens up huge possibilities to expand on collaborative learning amongst peer groups.
Imagine the possibilities
When it comes to virtual experiences for learning, training, meeting and collaborating, the possibilities really are endless and unlimited. Our tip? Just imagine what could be possible, and it probably already is! This might be replicating features that would be at an in person event, or features that are complementary (such as on demand video post event). From networking and breakouts to live relay plenary sessions, demos, polls and panel Q&A’s, the key to creating an excellent experience for your attendees is to include features that will excite them and encourage their participation at every turn. Just imagine demonstrating a product online, while your viewers can experience it for themselves, at the same time, in their own way.
