Teacher Audio Controls

The Audio Control panel allows you easily control your audio.

From the Audio Control panel you can mute and control your voice chat settings and control the volume level of the ambient noise in the scene.

Personal Voice Settings

Use the Voice Settings to mute and control your audio.


Teacher Headphones and Microphone

We strongly recommend that all Desktop application users use headphones with a built-in microphone. (Apple earbuds with the built-in mic will work).

If you choose not to use headphones, your students will hear an unpleasant echo as your microphone picks up the sound of their voices from your computer speakers.

  1. Click the tab of the Audio Control Panel where you see the instructor's name.

    (A character stands in a lobby; a button in the lower right displaying "Instructor" and a microphone icon is circled)
  2. Use the drop-down menu to select your microphone.

    (A character stands in a lobby; a "Voice Settings" pop-up is open to a drop-down menu where "Built-in Microphone" has been selected)
  3. Use the “Voice Chat” toggle to turn voice chat on or off for everyone in the scene.

    (A character stands in a lobby; a "Voice Settings" pop-up is open to "Built-In Microphone" and the Voice Chat toggle is circled)
  4. Click the “Microphone” icon to mute your microphone.


Ambient Audio

Ambient sound describes the background sounds in a scene that make things feel more real to users wearing the virtual reality device. You can turn the ambient sound up or down using the Ambiance Audio Controls.

  1. Click on the “Sound Wave” in the Audio Control Panel.

    (A character stands in a lobby; a "Sound Wave" icon in the lower right is circled)
  2. Use the slider to adjust the volume of ambient sound in the scene.

    (A character stands in a lobby; an "Audio" pop-up in the lower right displays a slider bar labeled "Ambiance")
  3. Close the panel by clicking the X button.


Student Support Panel

Teachers can send short gifs to students to explain how to grab objects, teleport, give a thumbs-up, and more.

  1. Click the “Controls” button in the bottom right corner.

    (A character stands in a lobby; in the lower right, an icon shaped like a game controller is circled)
  2. Choose the student question you need to answer.

    (An "In-App Support" menu displays a list of student FAQs; the first question is selected, and the "Show Students" button at the bottom right is circled)
  3. Click on “Show Students."

  4. The gif/animation appears in the students' view.


  • All students will see the visual until it is turned off.

  • Students will see only the visual without words. The words are for guiding your support as a teacher.

  • Provide additional instructions as necessary.
