Multiplayer allows multiple people to join in the same lesson as you to share an immersive Edify experience. Upload your lesson and schedule an event, then jump in live,together in the same space in VR or desktop.
You can also still host a lesson "by proxy" through Teams or Zoom and invite players to join your Edify session at the same time.
You can now share lessons with other users and select your preferred sharing permissions.
Sharing Edify lesson files allows you to invite other users to join your immersive lesson in Multiplayer or to allow co-editing of a lesson.
To share a lesson:
Locate the lesson under My Library and click Upload.
When you click accept on the prompt the lesson will take a few minutes to upload.
Once upload is complete a blue tag will appear stating that it is Ready to share.
Click Share to either: Change the lesson sharing permissions (you can share with users that are part of your organisation or other external users); or copy the share code.
To add a lesson:
Copy the lesson code that was shared with you.
Go to the Shared tab within My Library and input the code into the text box.
If you encounter an error, make sure that the owner of the lesson has set the permissions to the appropriate option. For instance, you won't be able to add a lesson that is set to Organisation only if you are not also within that organisation.
Create an Edify event to generate a multiplayer session that you can invite people to.
To create an event:
First you need to Upload the lesson to the Edify cloud.
Go to the Events tab in the launcher and click Create New. Complete the relevant information and add a lesson to the event.
Choose whether the event is Public or Private. In a private event, only members of your organisation can be invited, and in public events, anyone with an Edify account can be invited.
Type in a title and description, then attach the lesson to the event. You can also add descriptive tags to your event.
If you don't see the lesson in the dropdown list, double-check it has the correct permissions.
Add the email addresses of the people you would like to invite the event. Please make sure the people you invite have an edify account before adding them, or they won't be able to join.
Once you've clicked Create Event, the event will appear in your Upcoming events list.
