Rooms

Online venues, rooms, pages and more

This is where headline information will be made available – whether it’s live or pre-recorded, whether it’s a presentation or a show, and whether it’s broadcast or interactive.

Your people can engage with your content here, with their engagement being assessed and analysed against key metrics as identified by you.

Your audience can also follow the engagement level of each other as you decide which interactions can count towards the Leaderboard, where they can earn points (or just kudos!). Reward them for their comments, reactions, interaction with a partner’s content etc.  Your choices are limitless here for how you would like to encourage users to respond to and interact with your content.

If they post a question or click on the “support” icon, live moderators or support agents will respond to them immediately and offer assistance – whether that’s tech support or questions that need to be answered by your team or collated for the presenter to answer.

If you have people from multiple locations or with access needs, you’ll want to deliver your content in the best way for them to experience it.  That means closed captions in the language of their choice or audio in the language of their choice, and themes and design which is considerate of everyone.  This means sign language interpreters who can be superimposed on the screen or recorded with the video.  It means image descriptions and AAA-rated accessibility features.

Spaces

Spaces are where people can mingle, chat, play a game or complete an assignment.  A metaverse style room, which can be styled as you’d like, allowing those serendipitous, water-cooler conversations to happen. This is your space for your people to connect.

How can you make your networking more interactive and interesting? Use a landscape of your choice (video game layout, garden, known location), and as people enter the location and explore, they can either come across other people or be introduced. As you “walk” near to another person, the option to video call with them will appear and as you walk away, they will fade from your view – just like in real life! This is a virtual lobby for serendipitous and ad hoc conversations.

Leaderboard

The Vstage leaderboard allows your attendees to score points for every interaction – and here’s an opportunity for you to drive some action by rewarding interactions, allowing scores to generate points which can be spent on swag, celebrating the top commenters and interactions.
