SiLAS November 2020 Newsletter

Multi-Player = More People + More Places + More Fun!

We have been actively listening to the needs of our education partners, like you, and continue to develop and enhance both the in person and remote SiLAS user experience.

SiLAS’ Multi-Player “Create Room” feature will allow students and teachers to create animations no matter the educational setting! The steps to connect are simple; first, the teacher creates a secure link. The links are then sent to the students. The last step is to have students click the link on their own devices (wherever they may be) and record their social animation!  All that is needed is a computer with both a keyboard and internal microphone. Check out the Create Room tutorials below. We promise you will be ready to start creating social animations from anywhere!

Even Avatars Wear Masks!
As art imitates life, so does SiLAS.  Silas and all his friends have the option to mask up.  Users choose the mask by selecting the mask option directly under the microphone setting.
