- All students will join with their microphone muted and camara off by default
- Students will see what you see. (Since we've checked the checkbox "Everyone follows me" in the settings above)
On the right side you see a pannel for each student. If you click on the three vertical dots, a menu opens where you can mute or kick the student out of the meeting (there is no way to unmute a student, they must do that themselves)
Student Interactions (Questions)
Any student can press the hand button to ask for attention (raise hand)
You will see a popup notification and also a hand symbol on the pannel of the student who raised their hand:
- you can now orally ask that student to turn on their microphone and ask their question.
- If you hover over the pannel of the student you can see his/her full name.
- Afterwards the student should click the hand button again to lower his/her hand.
Your Screen Sharing Disappears
If your screen sharing disappears, click the rectalngle in top right corner. Don't click in the middle of the rectangle but close to the border. (If you click in the middle you rename yourself)

- Your microphone is muted when you join the meeting. Please do not unmute your microphone if you are not asked to by the host.

- If you have a question raise your hand and wait until the host asks you to speak. Then unmute yourself.
- If the host/lecturer does not see that you raised your hand for too long, unmute and ask for attention.
