First, click the circle to access the settings page, then click to enter the Administration Portal. This link will only be available if you’re an admin for your organisation.
Within this administration portal, look for Subscriptions on the left. Within the subscriptions page, you’ll see the content you currently have access to.
You’ll notice that we’ve divided our content into themes or profiles. If you would like to make sure that a specific type of content is downloaded and ready to use, simply check the download box.
This sends a message to all your ClassVR headsets, letting them know that they need to download and cache all the content in this theme or profile – so if, for example, I want to make sure that all images, videos and 3D models related to Science and Technology are available for my students, I would select this box. You can easily see exactly how many megabytes of data will be downloaded to each device.
The process is simple: whenever the headsets in your organisation are connected to WiFi and are NOT in use – so the screen is turned OFF – they will begin downloading the content required in the background. As soon as the device becomes active, the current download will stop. The process will begin again when the headset is inactive, until all the files are ready to be used.
This facility is designed for use well in advance of a teaching session. As you can see, some of these profiles contain over a gigabyte of data. We strongly recommend that you turn all your headsets on, check they are all connected, then click the checkboxes you require, before leaving them charging overnight. During this period, the headsets will pull down the content from our servers and share it between them on the local network.
You can check if your headsets are fully up to date through the administration portal too. Just click Devices on the left and look to see which headsets are in sync. If you see a green check mark here, all your subscribed content is on that device and ready to use. If you see a red cross, some of the subscribed content has not yet downloaded.
