The Engage platform is a free to use social education and presentation platform. Engage allows you to hold meetings, classes, private lessons and presentations with people from all around the world in a safe virtual multi user environment.
You can record and create your own lessons and presentations inside Engage using our recorder feature and you can add in immersive elements such as virtual objects for people to interact with or visit virtual environments such as the surface of Mars.
Why teach marine biology in a class room when you can teach it on the sea bed. Why travel thousands of miles for a single meeting when you can do it virtually. We are excited to see how people like you will utilize the Engage platform to educate the world.
Currently we recommend no more than 35 people inside a live room at any one time. We are working on new server capabilities and this number will increase rapidly over the coming weeks.
When using the Engage platform you are given access to the Engage presenter tablet. You use this virtual tablet in the same way as a real life ipad or tablet.
On the tablet, you are given recording options. When you select record, the Engage platform will record everything you say and do within the virtual space along with any presentations, virtual objects and media you share in the virtual room. This recording is saved onto your hard drive for you to review.
If you are happy with your performance you can share it privately with other users in your virtual room or choose to upload it to the Engage platform for the public to view at their own convenience.
Yes – You can choose to either record yourself or everybody in the virtual space at the same time.
Our team at Immersive VR Education will review it before publication on the main server index. You can share presentations and classes on most topics however content of a pornographic or racist nature are strictly forbidden and will not be shared on the public server.
Yes you can share you recordings privately without uploading it to the Engage servers. You have two options for this.
Option 1: Live Peer to Peer
If you are in a live room with other users you can simply broadcast your locally saved recording with other users inside the room.
Option 2: Email/File share recordings
All Engage recordings are stored in your Documents folder under Engage Recordings. You can copy the recordings files and share them via email or upload to a storage provider like Dropbox. For playback, other Engage users just need to copy the saved files into their own Engage Recordings folder located in Documents.
Yes – Using virtual reality as a communications tool is ideal as all nonverbal communication is transmitted due to how avatars are tracked using devices such as the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
Yes you can. When you start Engage and pick a location to hold your meeting you can setup a password that locks out any unwanted visitors.
Engage has a selection of virtual presenter screens that allow you to stream in documents and media from OneDrive, Google Docs and Dropbox. You can stream in PowerPoints, videos, audio and a range of different documents using our media playback system. Engage also supports Youtube video playback in 2D, 3D and 360 formats.
The Engage platform is free to use. If you wish to share your content on the Engage platform for other users to enjoy at no cost to them then the platform is completely free to use.
Soon we will be offering a revenue settlement system which will allow you to charge whatever you wish for content you publish on the Engage platform. This system will function on a revenue share model similar to leading MOOC platforms.
Yes – If you have a collection of work you wish to share using a virtual gallery space please contact us for more details.
Yes – We are still working on our upload feature however if you have something you wish to use immediately please contact us and we can arrange your assets to be added to our server index.
Yes – If you need a tool or environment for simulated training you can utilize all the tools currently provided on Engage. If you need something custom made please contact us for more information.
Finally, we are looking forward to working with you and we are excited to see where you take online learning in this new virtual world. This is a brand-new frontier limited only by our imaginations.
