UI Overhaul

We’ve made some big changes to Edifys' user interfaces in order to make your user experience more streamlined.

UI Overhaul

Wrist Panel (VR)

The new Wrist Panel consolidates all the functionality of the lectern into a radial panel accessible from the user’s wrist. This means everything you need for building and delivering lessons is accessible from anywhere, at any time, instead of having to summon the lectern as in previous versions of Edify. Features accessible via the Wrist Panel include:

  • Next Scene / Previous Scene
  • Undo / Redo
  • Open Lesson Planner
  • Media / Objects
  • Start / Stop broadcasting
  • Settings menu
  • Mute mic
  • Save
  • And more!

To access the Wrist Panel, rotate your wrist to face you as though you were looking at a watch, and then use the pointer from the controller in your other hand to hover over three dot icon and select, which will expand the radial panel.

Lesson Planner UI

The lesson planner provides a space to access Edify’s more complex lesson building and presenting tools. It can be used alongside the wrist panel to make the process of constructing and delivering a lesson more intuitive and streamlined.

The Lesson Planner interface provides a home for lesson creation tools you may use regularly, such as:

  • Broadcasting suite
  • User Notes
  • Adding content
  • Scenes
  • Environments
  • Environment tools
  • Settings menu
  • Environment animation / audio playback

To access it, open the wrist panel by selecting the outer ring and then select the last icon labelled Summon Lesson Planner.

Quick Access Toolkit (VR)

The Quick Access Toolkit is the new home for the toggleable tools that were previously located in the lectern. Like the Wrist Panel, the Quick Access Toolkit is designed for quick and easy access for all the tools you may need for delivering your lessons, such as:

  • Laser Pointer
  • Pen
  • Eraser
  • Slope  (AEC Toolkit)
  • Stake (AEC Toolkit)

To access the Quick Access Toolkit, press the B or Y (Oculus Controller, see below) button and then use the controller in your opposite hand to select the tool you wish to use. When the toolkit is open you can also double-tap B or Y to switch between the hand and the last tool you used.

Incremental Object Manipulation (Desktop)

We have added hotkeys to rotate and scale objects. Objects can now be moved incrementally using keys for more finite movement control. U and O rotate in the Z-axis, J and L rotate the Y-axis and I and K rotate the X-axis.

To scale an object up or down, use N and M.

The object movement hotkeys can be found in the hotkeys panel

Universal Hotkeys

We've made some slight adjustments to some of the hotkeys in order for them to be universally available on UK, US and German keyboards.

  • Num7 and Mun1 have been removed from move up and down.
  • Focus and zoom has changed from L and M to F and R.
