In an academy room, you can conduct sessions with up to 112 participants, for training. 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, e.g., when questions arise (hand signal), to share their audio/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.
ADDITIONAL PARTICIPANTS: (up to 100 users)
... 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. At the beginning, the host can allow certain participants to share their audio/video stream during the session, thus appointing them as publishers. This always requires the consent of the publishers. A maximum of 12 audio/video streams can be published simultaneously. The roles of the publishers can change during a session. All other participants can follow the session with their microphone/camera deactivated.
Step 1: Each video stream is labeled with the name of the publisher on the left side (1).
Step 2: You can control the incoming audio and video streams of individual publishers via the respective speaker and camera icons (2) (“Select item [number]”).
Step 3: The white arrows on both sides allow you to browse through the video streams of all publishers (3) (“Select item [number]”).
However, this is only possible as long as the host did not pin a specific stream in the main window.
Step 4: In case the host wants to include you in the active conversation and grants you publisher rights by activating your audio and video stream, your consent is required first (4) (“Deny” or “Accept”).
Please note that the academy room licence is an add-on that is not included in your licence and needs to be puchased extra. Please contact your admin or get in touch with us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
