Sharing your screen

Sharing your screen allows other attendees to view whatever you display there.

  • A PowerPoint presentation
  • A Word document attendees might collaborate on
  • Anything else you want them to see.

Recommended way to share your screen is to select Desktop option. When choosing an app, it will only share the app window.

Giving remote control

You can give remote control to any participant. This allows them to

  • Point and click with the mouse
  • Type on your screen from their keyboard.

You can also control your mouse/keyboard while remote control is on.

Tip: Don't move your mouse if someone else is trying to do something on your screen.

Stopping remote control

Using Chat

Tip: You may need to bring the chat window. It will flash orange on student screens.
