Tips
  • Create a free account at gravatar https://en.gravatar.com/ - This will give you an avartar in the meeting
  • Arrive 10 min early if this is your first meeting. You will need to make sure your video and sound work.
  • Setup your profile in the settings. (menu with 3 vertical dots on lower right corner, then click "Settings", then "Profile") This will make sure your name shows up correctly.
  • Keep yourself muted if your not talking. This cuts back on background noise in the meeting. Don't forget to unmute when you want to talk.
  • Use head phones or earbuds. Don't use external speakers. They cause feedback.
  • If your connection is slow turn your video quality down or off. You can set this under "Manage Video Quality" in the settings menu.
  • Chat, Screenshare and Hand Raising buttons are in the lower right corner of the screen
