Mute/Unmute & Audio Settings

You can mute and unmute your microphone. The host also can mute you. We recommend using a headset and/or microphone as it will lead to better sound quality than using your computer audio. Turn off all sound notifications on your device.

Screen Share

Panelists / speakers will be allowed to share the screen before the presentation. Your computer screen will become visible to all the participants once you start sharing your screen. Please close other applications on your computer so that notifications do not appear during your presentation and have ready any files you wish to share. You are recommended to share the specific PowerPoint and not your desktop.
