Presentation Tools

The presenter in the room is the person who has the projection screen icon next to their name. Room moderators can hand off or assume the presenter role by clicking to the left of a user’s name. Presenters can:

  • Upload and change the display of presentation files (bottom left of presentation pane)
  • Annotate a static presentation in real time (Drag your cursor to the right in the presentation pane to see these tools.)
  • Share your desktop screen (top center)

Many people learn quickly by just “playing around,” since these presentation tools are often self-explanatory using the graphical icons in the room. In addition, here are some tutorials that may give you more in-depth ideas and pointers.
