  • Choose to share "Screen 1" (your desktop) OR share the screen labelled "Embodied Labs" where the blue slides appear.

3. To share the VR experience, toggle the switch shown below to ON. 


4. Put your hand in front of the headset sensor.

  • Find the sensor in between the two lenses - where you put your eyes - inside of the headset. 
  • After a couple of seconds, you'll see a new window pop up, showing "Thumbs up to begin" on a black screen. 

If the above "Thumbs up to begin" window or the Zoom window mentioned below aren't easy to see, you can bring them up to the foreground by clicking on their icon in the taskbar


4. Navigate back to Zoom for a moment.

  • In the list of shareable window options, choose the black screen that shows "Thumbs up to begin".

  • Press the blue "Share" button at bottom right

Go ahead into the lab.
