Engage a Live Streamed Class with Classroom Tools

  1. The Classroom Toolbar allows you to interact with your students; ask them a question, view class discussions, and view confusing content, and more. 
  2. Use Interactive polling in a PowerPoint or a PDF then add it to your recorded/Live class session.
  3. Using these tools allows you to observe student engagement in your class or by the student. You will know whether your students are succeeding, struggling, or least engaged.
Physical classroom: Students can ignore watching the live stream. They should direct their attention to what the instructor is sharing on the screen/projector.
Virtual Attendance: Students watching virtually can see your screen, you teaching at the podium (if in a physical classroom), and see or hear you teach.
Using the Classroom Engagement tools: All students (in-class or virtual) can participate in the class session, ask questions, participate in the discussion, take notes, bookmark a Live Stream location, mark a segment of a live stream as being confusing, respond to polls, or view media slides.
