National Library Week April 20-24

To celebrate National Library Week, the library will be hosting virtual events all week long! We hope this will be a great way to come together as a community even if we cannot all be in the same space. No matter where you are in the world, you can join the fun! Just grab your laptop or your mobile device! All events are open to the UW law community, family, and friends!

Monday: Virtual Escape Rooms

Try one (or all!) of our virtual escape rooms created by library staff with you in mind! Escape rooms are designed for group collaboration so get a team together and test them out! Escape rooms are about 20-30 minutes each and will be available all week! 

Escape Rooms: 

  1. Legally Trapped
  2. UW Trivia
  3. My Cousin Vinny
  4. Creating a Constitution for Animal Crossing

 

Tips on how to Set-Up a Group Virtual Escape Room

What you'll need:

  1. Friends or colleagues to help with the escape! 
  2. A steady internet connection
  3. Zoom (or similar virtual conference service) 
  4. A can-do attitude 

There are two ways to complete a collaborative escape room:

  1. Zoom room host shares their screen with other meeting attendees while answering escape room questions. This allows all in the Zoom meeting room to synchronously view the screen of the host, who will control the action of the game. 
  2. Each party in the Zoom room can complete the desired escape room in their own browser, simultaneously. The question sequence of each escape room is predetermined, so everyone will follow the same course if the same answers are provided. 

And that's it! We hope you enjoy these virtual escape rooms! If you are doing one escape room per group (option 1), please be sure to answer the final question in each escape room (about party size). 

Happy escaping!
