GATHER TOWN SOCIAL HOUR
August 13 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Gather.Town is a web-conferencing software like Zoom, but with the added component of seeing the virtual “room” you and others are occupying and with the ability to move around and interact with other participants based on your locations in the room, just like real life. Users easily start and end side conversations and chats, or return to the main speaker just as at a real-world conference or other gathering. Rather than being moved to a Zoom breakout room, in Gather.town, you can simply walk your online-self to tables and chairs, sit down, and start a conversation.
The graphics in Gather.Town are basic and run on a wide range of computers with minimal lag. The low-res graphics are not a significant barrier to using the system.
To participate in Gather.Town you were required to register on the SFI-VIC.com website. You will receive an email with your entry link prior to Friday. If you registered and have questions about Gather.Town you can email [email protected]
