About the Webcam Bar
The Webcam Bar is activated by clicking on the Student icon. All students are visible wherever they are in the world. It’s a great feature to create a near-realistic classroom feeling.
When many students are following the training, it might happen that you hear excessive background noise. This can happen when one of the students is not in a quiet surroundings.
Therefore we advise to start all students in Mute Mode. Both the student and the trainer can toggle the Mute button.
When there is no webcam visible from the student, this could mean three things:
- student has turned off his/her webcam
- student doesn’t have a webcam (he/she can still see the trainer, the audio channel still works)
- student has very low bandwith (the application scales back the connection automatically based on available bandwith)
Special feature #1: student to main screen
It is possible to select a student from the Webcam Bar and transfer him/her to the one the presentation screens.
You might want to do this when one of the student has something important to share.
Just click on the Fullscreen icon of that student and select on which presentation screen you want to show him/her.
Special feature #2: Share Screen from student to main screen
Both the Trainer and the Student can share their screen. When a Student wants to share his/her screen, this has to accepted and facilitated by the the Trainer. For obvious reason, this is not done automatically.
The process is very simple. After the Student did a Share Screen, his/her webcam feed will change to the new content. Subsequently, the Trainer clicks on the full screen icon (bottom left corner of the Student’s webcam stream) and can select the presentation screen where the content will be shown.
