Meeting Options

There are ways you can ensure that students entering the meeting do not have the same powers as you (to Mute/remove others, share content etc.) This can be done in the meeting options.

Once you have created a meeting and saved it. You will be able to configure the Meeting options in the meeting scheduler (This option only appears after you’ve saved the meeting).

Clicking Meeting options will open a separate browser window with the Meeting Options. To make sure only you have Presenter rights in the meeting, select Only me as the option for “Who can present?”

If you want multiple presenters, you can select Specific people and you will be able to choose from the invited participants. Or you could promote attendees within the meeting.

Muting Participants

If someone leaves their mic on and it is making background noise, or someone is causing a disturbance, you as the moderator have the ability to mute them.

Note: Participants can turn their microphone back on after being muted. So if it is an exceptionally disruptive student, refer to the ‚ÄúRemoving Participants‚ÄĚ section of this document.

You as a Moderator can mute individual Participants or mute everyone.

First you need to access the Participant list, to do this, click on the Participants icon
