Moderator FAQs

I want to let my students use my room for their study group. How can I do this?

The best way to do this is to allow your students to join a session as moderators or presenters. As moderators they have the same privileges you do. As presenters they are limited to sharing content privileges.

You can do this two ways.

  1. Join the session with your students and promote them to the desired role.
  2. Let them use the room without you. Schedule a session that allows all guests to join as moderators or presenters.
