Video (4.5 mins)
Hello, and welcome to this call training video. I'm now in my call object. I'm going to click on join to start the call. This system was designed for instruction. it starts off by making sure that every student has connected their microphone properly. it goes through an echo test, which makes you hear your own audio. I am teacher one, and there's a sample student called Julia. You can have up to a hundred students at the same time. I have the ability to disable a student's microphone or webcam. but only they can enable it back. This is for their security and privacy. I can use the digital whiteboard. It can also be shared with the students. Julia is now drawing with me. All attendees can share their webcam. As this is an educational application, the camera starts disabled then students enable it. the goal is to speak to the students and control their screens with classroomapp manager. Let me share my screen. I can select my full screen, any application or a browser tab. You see two screens as I am using a dual monitor. I can also select an application. or any tab from my browser. An important note. If I chose to share my entire screen, I will have some feedback. You will see that there is a loop where it is sharing itself. So we don't recommend you do that. I'm going to go ahead and share a tab. This tab is now being sent to all my students. There are many useful functions that you should be aware of. On the left we have the users list. Notice the small desktop icon on top of my profile. This icon means I am the presenter. If you want somebody else to be the presenter, you just click on them and make them presenter. They can now share their screen. I can chat privately with any student. In addition to the public chat for all users. Students can raise their hands virtually, as Julia just did. You can see how her icon became a raised hand. Students can express their emotions as well, for proper emotional learning. You can create breakout rooms for students to work in groups. You can mute all users. Remember that you have to come back and unmute users when you are done. and even clear the status so we are all back to normal again. For additional control, I can also lock certain functions. Such as preventing the webcam or the microphone. Now onto the last set of features. presentation controls. I can upload a presentation, start a poll or share a video. I can make the lesson interactive by asking students questions by creating a live poll. Julia, for example, responded yes. Once the poll is over, I can publish it for all to see the results. I can upload a presentation, which will be shared with all students. I can switch live from slide to slide. Sharing an external video is a really powerfull tool. if you had a YouTube video or another link, you can share it here. When you play the video it will follow you on the student side. So you're always in sync. You can pause at specific points to explain important topics. In a normal call, students would be interacting with you. You can see here it shows me who is speaking at the moment. If there's a large audience, you would see who are the last persons to speak. if I made someone else the presenter temporarily, I can get control back by clicking on the presentation control. Finally, you have the ability to maximize any live stream. This is useful as webcams can take up a lot of real-estate and hide any shared presentation. Make sure your students are aware they can maximize a view. That concludes this video. Thank you so much for tuning in. You now have all you need to interact with your students remotely.
