Today we're exploring an exciting feature -
Live classes on Teachmore!
With live classes you can create a virtual classroom anytime. Whether you wish to teach something new in a live setup or conduct a Q n A session with your users, live classes have got your back!
Step one is to select a course through which you wish to conduct the live class. Head over to 'Courses' on your Teachmore dashboard and select a course
Now add a live video item to one of the sections in your course
Once the live video item is created, add the details
Title and Description
Message before video starts (optional)
Message after video ends (optional)
Save settings and approve the live video item
You can go live straightaway, or click done and open the live video item later to start the live session
Once the live session starts
The first step is to join audio using Microphone or join with the Listen only mode
Please note: It is essential to grant permission to use the Microphone because without that your users won't be able to hear anything.
Users too, will be asked to grant permission for microphone or they can choose to "Listen only"
This is where you see your users list
Based on your requirement there are different settings you can apply to get the best out of a live class
Let's look at each one of these settings in detail
Clear all status icons
A status icon is set by users to display their status during the live class. For example a user might set their status icon as 'raised hand' if they wish to ask a question
By selecting the 'clear all status icon' you can reset the icons for all users
Mute all users - Mutes all users including the presenter
Mute all users except presenters - Mutes all users except the presenter
Save user names - Export a .txt file containing names of all users present in the live video at the time
Under the 'lock viewers' option you can restrict users from using specific features
Set the status of a particular feature as 'locked' if you wish to restrict users from using it. For example, here we have restricted users from sharing webcam, and sending private chat messages.
Apply the settings you have selected
Some more ways in which you can manage users in the live class
Click on a user's name to see how you can interact with them or manage how they participate in the live class
For every user you can do the following:
Start a private chat with them
Make them the presenter for the live class
Promote them to moderater/demote them to viewer
Remove them from the class
Breakout rooms allow you to split up your live session into different groups of users in different rooms
Select the number of rooms as well as the duration for which you want to create breakout rooms
Drag and drop users to assign them a specific breakout room
The users will see a message asking them to join the breakout room they have been assigned
You can choose to end all breakout rooms anytime
Write closed captions
Your users will see the closed captions as you write them
To turn off closed captions click the closed captions button again
To start recording click the Start recording button on top of your screen
To access the white board, click on the presentation button on the bottom right corner
Once the board opens up you can select a tool of your choice and write or draw on it
You can add upto 10 slides to your presentation
That's where everyone can share their thoughts, ideas and questions!
There's a lot more you can do during a live video:
Start a poll
Upload a presentation
Share an external video
That's everything you can do in a live class!
