Using LanSchool Air with Lenovo VR Classroom

Using LanSchool Air with Lenovo VR Classroom

Introduction


Upon first joining an organization, a teacher begins with a single class that is usually called "My First Class." This example class can be used to better understand how to use LanSchool Air or updated for the needs of an actual class. Alternatively, create a new class. This article provides step-by-step instructions for creating and setting up a new class.



To get started, select Add to the right of the example class:



Create a Classroom for Virtual Reality



  1. On the Class Details page, enter a name for the class in the Class Name field.



  2. (Optional) Enter a description for the class in the Description field.
  3. (Optional) Select a banner for the class.
  4. Select Next .




    Select Devices for the Class Roster



    Devices that have been configured using ThinkReality display in the class roster automatically. If you do not see devices in the class roster, refer to ThinkReality’s setup guide for instructions on how to set up and configure the devices to be used in LanSchool Air’s VR experience.

    Using ThinkReality, each device can be configured with a custom name.  It is recommended to use a human-readable name, as these names display on the device inside the classroom experience for both the teacher and the students.

    If devices display correctly, search for each device and select the check box to add the device to your newly created classroom.




    When all devices have been located and selected, select Next .



    Locate the New Class




    New classes display on the My Classes page. Select the classroom to use.

    Select the Settings icon at an time to edit the settings. The Settings icon is available on the My Classes page and in the classroom.

    Use the New Class

    The VR classroom experience looks similar to the following:



    Each device that has been added displays. Inside the class, you can:
  1. See what each VR headset displays to the student
  2. Allow students to have full access with Open Access
  3. Directly guide classroom learning in the Teacher Led mode, which provides more control
  4. Launch apps on all devices from the VR Apps panel on the right
  5. Close All Apps on VR headsets

To get started, select START CLASS. A live thumbnail view of what is displayed on each VR device that has been added to the class and is online displays.



Teacher Led (Default)

In Teacher Led mode, students see themselves in a spaceship lounge by default.  They can look around but cannot launch apps on their own.



Open Access

In Open Access mode, students can look around the spaceship lounge and launch apps on their own. To turn on Open Access mode, ensure that class has been started and select the option on the right panel to activate Open Access.



Close All Apps

When you are ready to end the class or transition to a new lesson, select Close All Apps on the right panel.



Launch VR Applications

Applications, 3D images, and videos that have been set up using ThinkReality can be launched from the right panel. Select the experience to launch to instantly teleport students to that experience.
