This article covers:
- Controlling your own microphone and camera
- Controlling participants microphones and cameras
Controlling your own microphone and camera
At the bottom of the chat, you will have Cam and Mic buttons to be able to turn on/off your own camera and mic during the video chat.
Controlling participants microphones and cameras
Only the teacher who started the video chat can manage participant's microphones and cameras. To manage participant's microphones and cameras, select People at the bottom.
Control an Individual's Microphone or Camera
On the right, you can tap on the 3 dots to the right of a participant's name to turn off their video or microphone.
If a participant has their video or camera turned off, and you would like to invite them to turn it on, you can ask them to turn it on from the 3 dots to the right of their name as well.
They will then get a pop up asking them to turn on their microphone or camera.
Mute all or turn all cameras off
If you would like to turn off all participants' microphones or cameras at once you can do this as well. Keep in mind that participants can turn their cameras and microphones back on.
