When stepping into the realm of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR), it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. These immersive technologies offer incredible opportunities for training and learning, but for first-time users, they can also be disorienting and intimidating. This is where Tutorial Mode comes to the rescue. In this guide, we’ll show you how to make VR and AR easy for first-time users. You will learn the benefits of Tutorial Mode, its functionalities, and how to get started. Whether you’re an XR professional or a newbie, you’ll soon be navigating the virtual world with confidence.

The Power of Tutorial Mode

What is Tutorial Mode

ManageXR built the “Tutorial Mode” tool right into our deployment platform. It works in seamless synergy with Tutorial Apps created by VR and AR content developers and ISVs. The Tutorial Mode tool automatically launches a Tutorial App when the device is turned on. Users get a simple, one-step way to access Tutorial Apps, so that they can experience a friction-free orientation to VR and AR. 

Benefits of Tutorial Mode

Tutorial Mode is the bridge that connects first-time users with the immersive world of XR. This tool is essential for reducing friction, speeding up the learning process, and improving the overall user experience. It’s a powerful tool that enables users to overcome the initial challenges they may face when using VR and AR devices.

One of the primary benefits of Tutorial Mode is that it offers a smooth and delightful introduction to the XR environment. It acts as a gentle guiding hand that takes users through the basics, ensuring they feel comfortable and confident from the very start. The result? Users who can easily navigate immersive environments and who can take full advantage of the content.

How Tutorial Mode Works

Before we delve into the practicalities of Tutorial Mode, it’s important to understand how it functions. You can easily disable or enable Tutorial Mode on any type of XR device through device settings on our platform. When you enable Tutorial Mode, the Tutorial app will automatically launch when the device is turned on.

The best part is that devices will exit Tutorial Mode as soon as they exit your Tutorial App. This ensures that users don’t spend more time than necessary in the introductory phase, allowing them to quickly transition to their desired XR experiences.

Lastly, on ManageXR it is easy to reset Tutorial Mode for the next user. You can remotely send a real-time command to Enable Tutorial Mode (to individual devices or in bulk). This way, if you’re running an event or training where users are cycling through devices, you can give every new user the tutorial experience easily.
