When you step into a virtual training room, knowing your way around the buttons is vital. This article breaks down the main features of the virtual training room, giving you the insights you need to maximize your experience and get the most out of your sessions.
In the Virtual Training Room participants can use a pointer to better communicate with the other participants in the room.
The host's pointer is off initially.
After clicking the pointer button, the host can activate it by clicking anywhere on the model, visible to others.
Guest pointers are off initially.
The host must enable guest pointers by clicking "allow guest pointers" in the participant's panel.
This enables the guest's pointer button, used like the host's.
Note: Each participant sees their own pointer as a dot, while others see a "laser" pointer from the avatar's hand.
In the Virtual Training Room, the host has a measuring tool that's off by default. When activated from the bottom toolbar, the host can measure the distance between two points by clicking on them in a straight line.
First click: sets the anchor point,
Second click: sets the second point and calculates distance,
Third click: removes the measurement,
Fourth click: starts a new measurement.
This tool is synced and visible to all participants in the room.
In the Virtual Training Room, participants communicate via VOIP (voice over IP).
The microphone is on by default.
The host can mute using the "talk" button in the toolbar.
The microphone is off by default.
Host enables guest mic by clicking "allow guest mic" in the participant's panel.
This activates the guests' "talk" button, similar to the host.
Hide Others Avatars
Every participant has an avatar to represent them in the Virtual Training Room. Customizing the avatar can be done in account settings.
Visibility of the avatars can be toggled by clicking on the "show others" button in the toolbar. This only affects the visibility of the user clicking, i.e.- other participants will still see the avatars.
The participants' window provides an overview of those present in the virtual training room, along with the room's ID number.
For hosts, the participants' window serves as the control center for the room.
Disable/Allow participant's pointer: Manage whether participants can use their pointers.
Disable/Allow participants' microphones: Control participants' ability to use their microphones for speaking.
Attach Participants to your view: Secure participants to your viewpoint; by default, they roam freely in the virtual room.
Remove a User or make him the host of the meeting.
A host in a Virtual Training Room can assign any other participant in the room to be a host instead of themselves.
This is done by opening the participant's panel and clicking on the "make host" button near the chosen participant's name.
There can only be one host at a time.
To sum up, this guide has shown you the key aspects of the virtual training room. You learned about using pointers for better communication, measuring distances, and managing microphones for speaking. You also explored hiding avatars and controlling participant permissions. Lastly, you discovered how hosts can pass on their roles to others. With this knowledge, you can make the most of your virtual training sessions.
