Since the beginning of the Covid-19 health crisis, working, training, recruiting, raising awareness, or even communicating for business online has become more complex. To maintain social harmony and personal fulfillment, collective events are essential for companies. Meetings are going digital and so is team building.
At the end of this year so prone to internal seminars and events, digital escape rooms are a solution to bring together employees in a friendly and dynamic activity while respecting social distancing. Faced with this situation, how can a virtual seminar be successful?
WHAT IS a virtual seminar with Escape room?
Today, social distancing and telecommuting have undermined team cohesion within companies. To maintain the team spirit and promote the creation of bonds between colleagues, Emeraude Escape organizes customized virtual team building for its customers.
Virtual seminars make it possible to bring together all employees online for a half-day around speeches and discussions, energizing the seminar with virtual escape rooms.
A virtual escape room is an online escape room that can be played at home or in the office, alone or in multiplayer mode, in videoconference, and from smartphones, tablets or computers. This interactive platform takes the form of a game created on your website or on a dedicated site. As with physical escape rooms, players must search for items, open chests, discover new rooms, and solve a series of puzzles against the clock.
Virtual seminar: HOW DOES IT WORK?
For starters, multiple players connect at the same time on the interactive platform and join a “room” to play a game together. In particular, they can give themselves names and create avatars (uploading their photos, for example). Once all players are ready, the game can begin.
Two multiplayer modes are available:
- Challenge mode:
Players start at the same time and see the progress of their opponents in real time on a progress bar. Whoever completes the game first, wins the game. This challenge can also be played between multiple teams in the same format.
- Cooperative mode:
The players participate at the same time and must help each other to finish the game on time. They have access to different play areas and some players have clues that others don’t. They must communicate through the game chat and exchange items to solve the puzzles and ultimately win the game together.
