 _Participants List

As students sign into the classroom, their names will appear on the Participants List on the right-hand side of the room. It’s up to each individual student to activate his or her webcam. Once a student has activated their webcam, the “Live” and “CR” buttons under their name will become clickable for the instructor.

No participant, instructor or student, is seen and heard by others in the room until an instructor or moderator clicks “Live” under their name to put them “on stage” or “on air.” 

If you’d like to preview someone’s webcams to make sure you can see and hear them before they go live: click “CR” under their name, open the Control Room from the Tools menu and select the “Video” tab.

You can assign any individual student custom or full moderator permissions at any time by clicking the “V” to the right of their name. Selecting “moderator” will give that student all instructor permissions within the classroom. (Note that they still won’t have access to instructor-only portals outside the classroom such as Analytics and quick polls.) Selecting “Custom” allows you to assign specific permissions to that user like the ability to screen share or share or manage the chat.


Whenever someone clicks the raise-hand button in the chat, their name will go to the top of the Participants List and you’ll see the raise-hand icon next to their name. You can click that icon to put their hand down once you’ve answered their question.
