Abstract

Virtual Reality Social Platforms are increasingly in use in conferences, and exhibitions. COVID19 pandemic is the main reason for a rapid growth but there are reasons such as climate change to believe these technologies will be used widely once we will enter to the post pandemic era. In this paper, we will introduce our vision to combine social functioning and hands-on-training features in one package. We have participated in and organized various events using existing virtual reality social platforms. We will analyze in this paper their pros and cons plus introduce our own technology trials. As a result, we have better understanding what development tools and how much resources would be needed to be able to create the first minimal viable product combining social functioning and hands-on-training features.
