The software allows students to experience the livestream as if they are present in class. In addition, during small group discussions or in-class activities, online students are placed into small breakout rooms. This is where they may choose to share their screen, write on a whiteboard, download group files, take control of someone else's screen, or post a poll. Easy one click control features allow for students to raise their hand before speaking, indicate that the instructor is going too slow or fast, or indicate that they are temporarily unavailable.
