Team Tech Training
March 18, 2016
She:kon! The Initiative for Indigenous Futures team’s workload has begun to amp up with multiple projects running at once. With schedules that won’t always match up perfectly, it’s important to have the entire team have an understanding of the various tools we use.
The latest training session involved checking out VIVE. VIVE is a form of VR (Virtual Reality) where they place emphasis on it being a full room experience. There is the usual headset and what sets it apart is the inclusion of two controllers that are held by the user and are used to interact with the world.
Some of the other training demos have touched on the use of the Gear VR headsets and the creation of characters and general use of Second Life. There will be more sessions as skills are needed, such as camera use for filming. Technology is always growing and changing and staying up to date will continue to be important to the team as we move forward.
