MEET AND WORK IN VR – Scholarships

Master in Interaction Design in partnership with CISCO – January 2019

Introduction

Cisco Webex Teams is an app-centric cloud-based service that provides a complete collaboration suite for teams to create, meet, message, call, care, whiteboard, share, regardless of whether they’re together or apart; in one continuous workstream before, during, and after meetings. It is built to make teams work seamlessly. It is a simple, secure, complete, and open service that enables people to work better.
At the same time, Virtual Reality offers new ways for people to be present and interact within the same room even though they are thousands of miles apart. With certain work streams moving into VR, such as design & content creation, the Cisco Webex Teams in VR concept is the latest example of how Cisco is experimenting with collaboration tools that naturally support the workflow within a team. People are now able to interact, collaborate and be together in ways never seen before.

Brief

Collected data increases exponentially every year and it is becoming ever harder to make sense out of it in order to take informed decisions. VR and mixed reality give us the possibility to see information in a new way, transforming data into immersive virtual spaces that help us navigate knowledge in a more intuitive and useful way. Furthermore, they allow us to collaborate in real time with people in different parts of the world, letting them be hands-on within the virtual environment.
Candidates are requested to design an immersive environment that transforms data and metrics collected in a large company like Cisco (number of employees, their ages, professional skills, location, network within the company and others) into visual elements that facilitate information navigation, analysis and insights discussion through VR and/or mixed reality. This virtual space should work as a storytelling tool that enhances the exploration of data and communication among team members. The solution should also take into considerations Cisco Webex Teams’ main features (such as calling, messaging, whiteboard, file sharing) and it should expand the possibilities already offered by traditional work spaces in order to make the analysis and sharing of information as simple as possible across devices.
