Welcome to "I'm IN-HKUST"!

1) Download the VR Application

Go to Apple Store or Google Play Store and find “I’m IN – HKUST”. Kindly use your ITSC account to log onto the application. Once you’re in, you will be in the VR mode, which would require the use of VR eyewear.

App Icon

2) Make use of Language Commons’ and Library’s VR Goggles

With the VR Goggles on, you could experience a “real” interview. The open areas in the Language Commons and library are not allowed for the use of the VR application (with or without the VR eyewear). Use the headset inside the room reserved, and sterilize the goggles if needed.

  1. Reserve a session of a room in advance
    1. For Language Commons, make your meeting room booking at the service counter.
    2. For the library:
      1. Reserve “Interview Room” or “Group Study Room
      2. Borrow a set of VR goggles at IC Help Desk on G/F (on a first-come-first-served basis)
      3. Sterilize the Goggles at “Book Sterilizer” near Circulation Counter on G/F if needed
      4. Use the VR application inside the Room reserved but not in any open study areas
      5. Check out the Room by informing LC Help Desk or calling 2358-6729
      6. Return VR Goggles at IC Help Desk on G/F within the same day of borrowing

3) Choose the 2D mode

You’re, by default, in the VR mode. If you wish to exit the VR mode and choose the 2D mode, you could press ‘X’, the cross, at the left-hand corner.

4) Choose the scene

You could select either ‘Interview’ or ‘mini-lessons’. If you wish to re-choose the options, you could always go back by pressing ‘back’ at the bottom of the screen.

If you select ‘interview’, you could decide the length of your interview practice (10, 15 and 20 minutes). Then, select the challenge level of your practice (easy, intermediate or advanced). You're recommended to begin with the EASY level and navigate to the INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED level after you've practised with the app a couple of times.

You can choose from as many as 18 industries and professions. And, your interview will begin! During the interview, you can adjust the sound sensitivity level by moving the slider slightly beyond the current background noise level on the bar at the bottom of the screen if you don’t wish the background noise recorded and the next question delayed as a result. You can always choose to ‘repeat’ the question, go to the ‘next’ question or go back to the ‘home’ page.

If you select ‘mini-lessons’, our bonus feature, there are 17 topics that you could choose from. Each lesson is around 5 minutes, and the topics range from preparing a digital portfolio and a LinkedIn profile, cover letter writing, group interviews, answering standard and unexpected questions to body language in an interview.

5) Rate your interview

After the interview, you would rate your interview performance through a couple of questions to receive feedback. This feedback is tailored to your self-reported performance levels. After that, you will be redirected to the home page.

6) Listen to your recordings

You could access your interview recording(s) under ‘Recordings’ on this website by ensuring you have logged onto it using your ITSC account.

B. How to adjust the tightness

  • Adjust the lenses by shifting them left and then right until they click into the position that allows you to see what's on the screen most clearly.
  • To do this, move the two sliders on either side of the top strap.
  • To loosen the side straps, move the sliders toward the top strap. To tighten the side straps, move the sliders away from the top strap.
  • After you move the sliders, re-center the top strap between the sliders to ensure a comfortable and balanced fit, and the top strap is centered on your head when you put the headset on.

Wearing Glasses

  • If you're wearing glasses, make sure to insert the glasses spacer. When you're ready to put the headset on, put it on from front to back.
  • Before installing the glasses spacer, check to make sure the width and height of your frames are the following sizes:
  • Width: 142mm or less
  • Height: 50mm or less
  • Once you've made sure your glasses are the right size, insert the glasses spacer into your headset to provide a larger fit.
