Workshops are a fundamental building block of creative and technical communities. Whether you want to master a new skill, explore a new topic, or share your passion with others, they're the perfect way to do it. More than just lectures or presentations, they're interactive, collaborative, and fun learning experiences that connect you with people who share your interests. Delivering high-impact learning experiences is a key metric of every engaging host, and now you have a better tool to produce workshops: Huddle01 Spaces.

Huddle01 is building a decentralized real-time communication network enabling powerful audio/video experiences, and recently, they launched a new product called Spaces. It comes with the following features:

  • Wallet & social login

  • NFT avatars

  • Token gating

  • Screen sharing

  • Easy recording

  • Decentralized identifiers (DIDs) as display names

  • Group chat & private DMs

In this guide, you'll learn how to host a workshop using Huddle01 Spaces.

Getting Started

Hosting Workshops using Huddle01 Spaces

You'll first need a crypto wallet to access cryptocurrency, interact with DApps, collect NFTs, and more.

There are several wallet options, but we'll use one of the most popular ones: Metamask. To get a Metamask wallet, follow the instructions on their official website at metamask.io/download.

Next, head to app.huddle01.com, where you'll see two options: "Video Meeting" and "Audio Spaces". Select "Audio Spaces," and a title prompt will pop up. Create a simple, catchy title highlighting what guests will learn during your workshop.

Once you have your title, click "Sign in with wallet," you'll see an overlay of several options, including Phantom, WalletConnect, and OKX Wallet. There's also the option to sign in with DIDs. DIDs are decentralized identities that identify and authenticate you. Huddle01 allows you to sign in with various DIDs, including Lens, CyberConnect, and Unstoppable.

Select the Metamask option and confirm your crypto wallet address by clicking "Sign". After signing, continue to set your display name and choose your NFT avatar. If you don't own NFTs, Huddle01 has a selection of default avatars you can use as well.

Now that we've completed the basics, it's time to set the stage!

Setting the Stage

1. Manage host controls

Let's check the host controls. Click the shield icon at the bottom-middle of the screen to see your options. For best practices, I'd recommend allowing everyone to participate in the chat and direct messages but turning off notifications. This allows your guests to engage throughout the workshop without the constant distraction of new message alerts.

2. Show timer

Displaying the timer is a great way to keep track of the event time. Hosting an Audio Spaces event within the hour shows respect for your guests' time and encourages their presence for the duration of the event. To display the timer, click the three dots at the top-right of the screen and select "Show Timer".

3. Share screen

Select the monitor icon at the bottom center of your screen. It will allow you to share a tab, a window, or your entire screen. Choose the option best for your workshop, and when you click "Share", a notification will confirm you're sharing your screen. A best practice is to have your workshop's deck in presenter mode so that guests are greeted with a welcome screen in addition to your voice when they join.

4. Select music

Set the mood of your Audio Spaces by choosing one of the background music options. Select the music icon at the top-right of the screen to choose from Calm My Mind, Cradle of Soul, and Forest Lullaby. Once you pick a music mood, click "Play Music," and your vibe is set. When you're ready to begin your workshop, click the same tab to stop the music.

5. Start recording

Event recordings are the top requested perk by communities. To offer your community a video replay of your workshop, click "Record" at the screen's bottom-left. A notification popup will confirm when your recording has started. Once you're ready to end your workshop, stop recording to download or email your replay.

Once you've set the stage, you can easily share your workshop link across Twitter and Lens using the share buttons at the top-right of the screen.

Bonus: Token Gating

For extra razzle-dazzle, spice your workshops up with Token Gating!

Huddle01 Spaces allows you to token gate your workshop using NFTs, DIDs, or POAPs. With token gating, you limit guest access to audience members that own a specified token. This way, you can offer exclusive value to your community in a unique and fun way.
