Uptale Tips #1 : How to run a collective VR training with Oculus casting option

To better support you in achieving your training and business goals, Uptale would like to provide you some sidekick tricks that may fit your needs 🙂

 

With the casting and live streaming options in Oculus headsets, you can now live in the training of your colleagues without blind-guessing what they are wowing at 😯

 

Why would it be practical for training?

Benefits for trainers:

  • Possible to see what the learner is doing within the training 👀
  • Able to provide instant feedback on their performance 
  • Feasible to connect to the overseas teams using live streaming
  • Time-saving

 

Combining with our classroom app, you can have a comprehensive view of their performance, and be able to give them advice on areas to focus on. This is particularly useful for soft skills training, which is normally harder to assess the capabilities of their employees and the improvements.

 

Benefits for learners:

  • Enable and improve communication and stimulate brainstorming 🤯
  • Prerequisite skills, soft skills, and team spirit will be trained
  • Potential knowledge transfer
  • More fun and engaging

Sharing is caring,  this promotes knowledge transfer instead of knowledge hoarding. 

 

How does it work?

Casting your training is as simple as viewing your VR training on Uptale Player App. Depending on the model of your headset, the steps and the destination of the casting will be different. 

 

Aircraft Maintenance Staff use case: 

Casting/live streaming an aircraft maintenance engineer practices inspection and repair the new type of engine 👩‍🔧 👨‍🔧 . Teammates can observe and discuss simultaneously how it should be fixed, with or without being physically in the room. This enables knowledge sharing and creates emotional memories.
