Virtual space matters.
A large-scale, longitudinal study on avatars and virtual environments found that spacious, panoramic spaces increase synchrony, presence, enjoyment, and realism.
Panoramic, spacious virtual environments provide a feeling of freedom, and motivate to work on creative tasks and brainstorming.
More closed environments like an office or a meeting room, people feel more contained and tend to focus on one particular task like a review or analysis.
Both types of virtual spaces have their pros and cons. That’s why it’s important to consider which virtual space to use for the meeting to get the most out of it.
At Glue, we have a range of different virtual spaces: indoor, outdoor, formal, and informal. This way you can easily choose a suitable space for any type of meeting.
