Created for collaboration and team building Virtual spaces aren’t just meeting rooms but interactive environments where work gets done. Unlike traditional conference calls that rely on one-way communication like screen sharing spaces, these collaborative spaces are designed to foster community, productivity and connection to hybrid or remote teams.
These virtual spaces are simple to use and accessible to anyone using a standard PC, Mac or browser. These virtual spaces are rich in features, making them effective tools for collaboration. Some of them even let you create an immersive experience by using VR. Some have a complicated world-building editor while others have simple avatar systems that use floating emojis to convey emotions during conversations and presentations.
Google Docs allows team members to edit and view documents, with options for commenting or tracking changes, as well as granting different access rights. It can be used for video conference and chat, and is compatible with other tools such as calendars, emails, and kanban board.
Microsoft Teams is an integrated suite of office tools, which includes chat video, voice, and conference documents, document storage, and integrations with other workplace software. It’s available for free to all Google users and has many pricing options for companies of any size.
ImmersedVR, an innovative VR collaboration tool, uses the power of telepresence to connect people around the world in shared workspaces. It lets team members write on documents as well as add notes to plans, and even shake hands with colleagues, and be able to see virtual avatars of colleagues standing close to them. This advanced technology is being increasingly used for classroom-based training and simulations. Duodecim, the Finnish medical society, for instance, is using Glue to create healthcare training exercises for hybrid and remote employees.
