Next Level Virtual Interactions

Long, long ago (back in March 2020), Aneta Key enticed her peers to embrace the online interactions that the pandemic suddenly imposed on planet Earth. She created a series of playful “Virtual Explorations” online events designed to “boldly go where few have gone before.” Since then, she has helped hundreds of people lead virtual meetings and classes even as the rapidly mutating strands of online collaboration tools proliferate. 

Are you ready to discover new virtual worlds with fellow NASAGAns? This program is for you! We will discuss, demo, use, and play with Gnowbe, Zoom Immersive, Mural, Miro, Gather.town, Glue, vSpatial, and maybe others, time permitting.

This will be a fun, fast-paced, curiosity-fueled, interactive, experiential, hands-on program that will combine demos, experimentation with a variety of tools, independent projects and Quests, paired and small group projects and Quests, and a concluding showcase. A VR headset is not required but if you have one, have it ready!
