Educational type places to check out in Immworlds!
Some notes before you go and explore!
All these locations on https://metaverse.community. You can access all of them after you are inworld. They are in the pin icon at the bottom middle of the window. You can also access them directly by just clicking on the link and going in directly as a guest.
Some of these locations require more graphics power than others. Particularly #s 1,5,9,10,and 11. If you have an old computer or less than 8GB of RAM on your machine you might experience slower frame rates on these locations. Your current frame rate in-world is the number to the right of the region name on top in parentheses. if your frame rate is below 10-15 your movements will be somewhat choppy. We have a sheet that offers help with this. Just ask!
All of these locations can be modified for you with different colors, furniture and branding. We can also create outside places to gather for a change of scene.
One thing you should do is check out all these places with a sample of the machines that your people use and see which ones work best. This will give you a good idea of which type of virtual space you can use for your needs.
One last thing. Please don’t just drag a pile of people into a location at one time. Virtual worlds are still in their infancy and most people have never heard of them and probably have never been in a virtual world. At Immworlds we recommend that you take in smaller groups at a time so you can show them how it all works and address their needs and concerns. This will give them a much better first experience and not scare them away! One of our people can be available to help get this started. Just contact Steve and make an appointment!
At Immworlds we offer training to help you along. We can train individuals and groups in your organization on how everything works so everything will run smoothly.
