Participant FAQs

My instructor gave me a room to present my project to the class. How do I show my presentation?

Confirm that your instructor gave you presenter or moderator privileges to the room. As a presenter or moderator use Share Content to share a blank whiteboard, an application, or a file. If you are showing a PowerPoint presentation, select Share Files for the best experience for everyone. Best of luck with the presentation!
