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.

Try first

If you didn't use Teminar before we suggest to test the session page prior to your first session. You can always plan a test Teminar (maximum duration 10 minutes) without any charges.

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.
