Don't you just hate on those Zoom calls when two people hog the conversation space for a conversation that should be a side bar? OR, maybe you are the one wanting to sidebar but don't want to disrupt the current conversation. In everyday life, you would be able to step aside and have that more private conversation but virtual life has made that almost impossible. Almost.
Connect Marquette has been looking into new meeting platforms to fix this very issue. We are very excited to invite everyone to join us in playing around on one of these platforms for our February First Friday, Topia!
Topia is a more human video chat in a virtual world. You are placed into a world (which you can change) and can walk up to people to talk to them. As you get close, their video appears on the screen and as you walk away, it disappears. You have a whole WORLD of room for all your side conversations!
Of course, there are pros and cons to any system. The one downside is it is not currently compatible with phones and you must have your video camera on to join. However, our committee had so much fun testing out this platform, we are sure that it is worth it. SO, grab your computers and join us in this new world on Friday, February 5th at 5:30 pm!
