3 NEW PLUG-IN Need to go to test site to download new plug-in and test connection speed p/en/support/meeting_test.htm p/en/support/meeting_test.htm Attendees should go there again for new version Once is enough Particularly important for hosts and presenters

4 ATTENDEE STATUS No longer in attendee pod Now in top toolbar I put instructions for doing this in my opening layout A good idea to put any necessary “how-to” instructions in your opening layout They can use chat pod or, if option is enabled and they have a mike, they can talk Let’s try it!

5 NO MORE LAYOUT NAVIGATION BAR Used to move from layout to layout during a presentation Sadly, no more… Use the Layout menu instead

6 CAMERA AND VOICE POD Click “Start My Camera” Gives you a preview New step: Click “Start Sharing” to share Pause is in lower right; roll-over to see Turn on/off Video in top toolbar pulldown as well

7 SOUND Meeting>Audio Setup Wizard is still there Essential!!! Two new sound icons in toolbar Speakers Off, Mute conference, volume Microphone Disconnect, mute, volume Don’t click the icon! It’ll disconnect the microphone

8 AUDIO MENU Audio menu allows: Single Speaker mode Only one person can talk Disables mike for other participants Asterisk means you are the speaker Enable Audio For Participants Multiple speakers Very easy to step on each other’s sound Set up ground rules if you use this option E.g. – Raise hand before you speak

9 POD OPTIONS ICONS No longer in lower right corner Now in upper right corner Specific options depend on the pod

10 NOTE POD Allows formatting Text size Color Italics Bullet points You can format selected portions of text Previously it was all or nothing

11 SHARE POD: START-UP Only one pulldown, that shows you all options Share your screen Share a PowerPoint, PDF or.jpg Bring up a whiteboard

12 SHARE PODS: FULL SCREEN For any share pod An End-user or Presenter option Participants can go Full screen with any share pod Click “Full Screen” Hosts can go full screen WITHOUT affecting Participant view To force full screen as host, go to “Pod Options” and choose “Force Presenter View” Then click “Full Screen”

13 SHARE POD: DRAWING, POINTER Whiteboard (Draw) and pointer options are now at top right of pod Last and next buttons, and sidebar (which is helpful for speaker’s notes) still at lower left

14 ACCESSING YOUR NOTES IN POWERPOINT

15 ATTENDEE POD Divides participants into three groups Hosts, Presenters, Participants You CAN’T raise hand from here Use top toolbar for that You can start a private chat from here Click on the person you wish to chat with

16 ATTENDEE POD: PROMOTING Click a name to promote to Presenter or Host You can enable their camera and sound from here too They need to then turn on their own audio/video from top toolbar

17 BREAKOUT ROOMS Click icon at top of Attendee pod Drag attendee icons into rooms Default is to evenly distribute Click “Start Breakouts” to start

18 CHAT POD Options pod allows you to: Change text size and color Text size change only applies to your screen Color change will be seen by all Start private chat More convoluted path to a private chat than previous versions Easier from Attendees pod
