ABOUT THE CLASS

VR starts with how the self is perceived. Designing the right self-representations not only determines how users perceive and navigate in a virtual world but also sets the product’s tone. Essential for Social VR applications, it defines your users and changes how they interact with each other. It may start with virtual hands, controllers, or an avatar but great self-representation has the potential to increase presence and immersion which results in better user engagement, ultimately urging your users to return back to your product.

In a 30 minute webinar, Key Lime Interactive will help you:

  • Learn how self-representation affects user perception and create affordances for interactions
  • Identify visual cues that impact sense of scale and refine how users interpret the environment
  • Establish a path of success for your product by determining the type of usability / effectiveness testing that will have the most impact on your design
