In an academy room, you can conduct sessions with up to 112 participants, for training purposes on a larger scale. There are 3 different roles in an academy room:

HOST: (1 User)

... is appointed by the admin and has permission to start and manage the session. He controls or moderates the action by allowing participants, for instance when questions arise (hand signal), to share their audio and video stream.

PUBLISHER: (up to 12 users)

... are the participants who have been authorized by the host to share their audio and video streams during the session.


... are the participants who join and follow the session but are not per se allowed to share their audio/video stream.

A session in the academy room must be started by the host.

Step 1: At the beginning, the host can allow certain participants to share their audio/video stream during the session, thus appointing them as publishers. (1)

Step 2: This always requires the consent of the publishers. All other participants can follow the session with their microphone/camera deactivated. In case of a question, participants can raise their hand. (2)

Step 3: The host gets notified (3) and he can activate the audio/video stream of the participant (4) so that he can publicly ask the question.

Step 4: Alternatively, he can also reject the question by clicking on the hand symbol. To reject all messages at once, simply click on the “LOWER ALL HANDS” button. (5)

Step 5: By clicking on the pin needle (6) of any window, the host can fix this window in the center and thus control the view for all users.

  • All other publishers are displayed on the left side of the screen.

A maximum of 12 audio/video streams can be published simultaneously. The roles of the publishers can change during a session

Please note that the academy room license is an add-on that is not included in your license and needs to be purchased extra. Please contact your admin or get in touch with us via
