The Visual Vocal content authoring tool lets you organize your content in many different ways. That said, when we step back and look at the kinds of content people are publishing, we have arrived at some best practices for constructing Vvs.


Any Vv is meant to tell a story and to solicit feedback from end-users. To support this story you will want to have a clear, concise flow through your content. You may find yourself presenting a few different kinds of content:


Linear:

Each scene only has one teleporter such that end-users can only linearly progress from scene to scene. You may optionally provide a teleporter from the "last" scene back to the "first" scene.

Hub and Spoke: 

There is a primary scene that gives an overview of the entire project. Within this primary scene are teleporters to "satellite" scenes that represent sub-locations within the overall project. Each satellite scene, in turn, has a teleporter back to the primary overview scene

Graph:

Every scene is linked to every other scene via a collection of teleporters. If there are four scenes, each scene would have three teleporters within it, linking every other scene.
