The session page
The session page is the cockpit for the participants and the speaker. The participant can see the webcam (if shared) and presentation or desktop of the speaker. Also information about how to get audio can be found here. The speaker has full control over the session. Check this explained screenshot.
Use a Google Chrome web browser
The session page is build on advanced technology that currently is well supported by Google's Chrome browser (version 61 of higher). Google Chrome can be downloaded free.
If you want to share your desktop you also need the free "NewTelco Desktopshare" plugin from the Google Chrome store. This will be prompted automatically and once when you share your desktop for the first time.
If you didn't use Teminar before we suggest to play around in the live session page demo prior to your first session.
You can also plan a test Teminar (maximum duration 10 minutes) without any charges. For this purpose you need a (free) account.
How to get to the sessie page
Login as speaker and select "Planned Teminars" in the menu. Than select the presentation-icon from the Teminar that you want to conduct.
If the session has not started yet
For future sessions alle information about the session will be displayed on the the session page: what is the subject, who is the speaker and when does it take place.
When the session is passed
For sessions in the past still the information about the session and the speaker are visible. And if the organizer requested so participants can request for a download link to the audio recording.
