Create a Playlist (Extinguisher)

What are Playlists?

The Playlist feature enables organisations to control the specific Extinguisher VR scenarios learners see in the Playlist tab, when using the VR headset (unit). This provides trainers with greater control and standardisation over the learning experience. Playlists can include up to 20 scenarios within them, and each VR headset can have a maximum of 10 playlists assigned to it (for the user to select from).

The Playlist feature is available to all Extinguisher Standard, Plus and Pro customers, via their Capture account.


How are Playlists created?

Playlists are created in Capture using the Create Course feature and then assigned to a unit. When a learner is in the headset, they connect to the internet and the Playlist/s assigned to the unit will automatically download from Capture and become available for the learner to select and use. Once a Playlist has been downloaded to a unit, it remains available to anyone using the same unit.
